Great series !
The one I liked right away is the one by the old General Electric Building. But I think that the other ones are even better – because they are more risky. Like the women who’s face is hidden by the shadows only or the one hidden by the red signage.
This is like making sense out of meaningless things. Or saying something out of meaningless thoughts. Humm, I sould make myself clearer : only one of these pictures would be close to meaninglessness, but the whole in the end means something. And something else.
You are right. Confusing indeed, after reading myself back.
Only one of those pictures would have been a nice picture with no specific meaning. A person who’s face is unwillingly hidden.
The fact that it’s a whole series of people with their faces hidden put emphasis on a specific idea – and everyone could derive it’s own proper idea.
Only one of those pictures could say “I’ve got across a person without a face today”. A series of those pictures could say “I realise that most of the people I get across in a day are faceless strangers”. Well this is the idea that sprung into my mind, instantly, while loking at this series.
Hence the power of a series. Probably the reason why you work with series. Definitively the reason why I love well constructed series.
Hope this can pull you out of confusion now. English is not my mother tongue. And I’m sure you can hear my accent while you read me. 😀
Oh and thank you for saying you were confused – i appreciate this kind of frankness.
Many thanks for your thoughtful comment, Alain. Your English is far better than my French. I’m glad that you appreciate series – I’m looking to do more conceptual series like this in the future. Cheers.
