GOOD Pictures: Jaimie Warren Wants You to Feel Better

Absurd and playful self-portraits

GOOD Pictures features work by a new photographer each week, with a focus on up-and-coming artists. It is curated by Stephanie Gonot and Jennifer Mizgata.

Jaimie Warren's website and Aperture monograph are entitled "Don't You Feel Better." And yes, I do feel better when I look at her work. The images above are from an ongoing series of absurd and playful self-portraits she's been creating since 2003.

The Aperture bio describes Jaimie as "a curator, performance artist, and photographer who makes theatrical, humorous, self-portraits in different scenarios and locations, including at parties, in her kitchen, in her car, and at the zoo." In addition to making still images, Jaimie co-directs a faux public access television show for kids called Whoop Dee Doo. She lives and works in Kansas City, Missouri.

So feel better—delve into Jaimie's work.
