RESURGENCE | GALLERY EXPOSED
Michelle Magdalena Maddox

"Resurgence is a collection of forms in nature, radiating beauty and timelessness. Using Big Sur as the canvas, Michelle Magdalena Maddox compares the purity of the female body with the hard, textured lines of a redwood tree to the complimenting softness of curves and a poppy flower. The collection is a moving journey through landscape and form, capturing raw elegance and emotion."

-Rachael Short, Gallery Exposed

Cover Story in the Weekly
About Michelle Magdalena

Michelle Magdalena’s photography comes to terms with death—and life.
By Walter Ryce

In the open-beam ceilinged loft of her Pacific Grove home her father built, Michelle Magdalena Maddox – tall, crimson-haired, pale skin peppered by freckles – gracefully patters about. She sits in a chair, swivels, gestures expressively, gingerly touches her face, crosses her legs, spins ‘round, and aims her eyes as if taking a photo of the unfolding conversation about her craft – photography....
