This monograph entitled In Plain Sight is a survey of the multifaceted career of Jean Pagliuso who began her career in fashion and quickly rose to collaborate with film studios and directors. Her images such as the indellible American Gigolo have found their place in the visual history of the Motion Picture Industry. Always present in the last two decades of her work is a backdrop of subtle theatricality that has continually seeped into her expansive landscapes and even into the subtle Poultry Suite , portraits of chickens. An extensive traveler, Pagliuso examines the mystery of place. Her willing subjects become the temples and pyramids of Egypt, Peru, Mali, Cambodia, Burma and in the deserts of New Mexico. These fragile structures have inspired her to employ an equally sensitive approach to printing. The result is a unique process of hand-applied silver gelatin on rice paper.
