Chishikilauren, Lexington, Kentucky

Here’s what Chishikilauren, a 23-year-old photographer from Lexington , Kentucky , tells her uninvited visitors: “I’ve got a name. I’ve also got an IQ, a minor obsession with photography, purple legwarmers, an intense dislike of anything relating to John Tesh. I bite my nails, sing to myself in the car, subsist on coffee and jazz. I thrive in lime green environments. I prefer early mornings to late nights, fall to spring, black and white to color. I once punched my brother so hard he threw up chocolate milk (but that’s really his fault for instigating a fight after dairy.) I’m allergic to cats and grass, a fan of linguistics and classic lit, in love with Salinger and Vonnegut, utterly displaced and not quite done drifting.” She also quotes Isabel Allende in De amor y de sombra (Of Love and Shadows, Knopf, 1987): “Photographs deceive time, she said, freezing it on a piece of cardboard where the soul is silent.” That, and especially the John Tesh diss, sold us. Her work is itself in the shadows between the whimsical and the earnest, the guilty and the pleasurable.
