In a previous post on The Art Show 2014, I wrote about Ann Hamilton’s ONEEVERYONE series. For this project, Hamilton photographed fair attendees and printed their images for display in Carl Solway Gallery’s booth:
I had my picture taken, in part because I got to pose for Ann Hamilton and in part because each sitter would be mailed a print of someone else who participated in the experience. I received my photo last week:
Because Hamilton photographed subjects standing behind a membrane, many individual details are intentionally out of focus. But those that remain pressed up to the surface–his nose, a lock of hair–are hauntingly present.
Update: I’d love to know whose photo this is. Please share this post with anyone who might help me identify him!
