Intimate Portraits of Thinking

After twenty years on the contemporary art scene, Josephine Pryde started receiving more attention. In April 2012, one of her photographs of guinea pigs appeared on the cover of the American Artforum magazine, which also included an extensive review of her retrospective exhibition, Miss Austen Enjoys Photography1.
