I posted a mannequin image on Instagram the other week. I have hundreds of these. I've been taking them for a while, usually through shop windows while on my way to shoots. There's no reason behind them. No underlying commentary on how idealisation results in lifeless, plastic, empty expressions. No comparison between the realist and impressionist takes on the human face.
I see them from time to time and I just find them interesting, I guess.
Now, I don't want to flood my IG feed - although I'll surely put more up there in time - but I feel I want to publish them.
It's a 'release', sure. Also, it clears the decks of the various non-commissioned, random miscellany which clogs up my archives, and which has nowhere to go.
Here are some of the men. Enjoy (?) -
