Kristine Potter’s latest photobook, Dark Waters, focuses on the violence that permeates the territory and popular culture of the USA. She contrasts a series of portraits of women with scenery that appears serene but is in fact views of places with sordid names, such as Murder Creek, Bloody River, and Rape Pond, evoking the domestic violence that allegedly took place there in the past. Drawing on the musical genre of murder ballads from the 19th and 20th centuries, Kristine Potter alludes to the flippant popular glorification of violence towards women that still pervades today’s cultural landscape.
