Ana Mendieta, Isla.

I really enjoyed this piece because it took awhile to figure out where this photo was taken. Is it taken from far above of a small island? Was it taken up close of a formation of mud? I decided that it was an up close shot. I like the way that Mendieta worked a feminine figure into this and other pieces. It feels like a visual representation of mother earth made from nature existing in nature.
