JO ANN CALLIS
[b. 1940] American artist who works with photography
I photographed models, but all of them, female or male, are me. It’s coming from me. My insecurities, my revenge, my disappointment. - Jo Ann Callis

I do like to control the image and create it and not just take what’s there.... But of course taking a picture is not like life. It’s “let’s pretend” for an hour... - Jo Ann Callis

...sexuality, or sensuality is used throughout my work. Even with objects, I’m looking at them in a way that I’m caressing them with my eyes—that’s how it felt, anyway. - Jo Ann Callis

I began by making pictures in interiors and about interiors—pictures about feelings, and emotions, and relations. - Jo Ann Callis

I always think of photography as being out there and catching decisive moments and wonderful things that are happening and putting them together by juxtaposition. I never did that. - Jo Ann Callis

I consistently want to make things that satisfy my sense of beauty. - Jo Ann Callis
