Sigri Strand's In The Shade of Night explores the film still as a medium

It has been a long and winding road for photographer Sigri Strand. Beginning her bachelor's degree program in 2001, she found herself living in New York City for a while before finishing her studies in photography at the University of Colorado Denver a decade later in 2011. That same year, Strand was accepted into the Pirate Contemporary Art cooperative. In advance of her first solo exhibition tomorrow evening at Pirate, Westword spoke with the photographer about the intimate relationship her work has to feature-length films, and the role women (and herself) play as subject matter.
