A row of mannequins
A konditorei table
Objects that speak of a function, a need, status, weather, a circumstance, but also things that exist on their own (or does a chair exist without someone to sit on it?). I have photographed them for different reasons, although in all cases there's one that has led me to snap their pic: their expressivity. Granted, objects can easily look lonely, thus inspire the idea of loneliness and even despair, but there are other images that speak to me of other things, like the bittersweet afternoons in the late fall, the sun in the summer, a possibility that never occurred. These make images that work as reminders of the things we could or dared not do.
There's another thing to this: I like photographing objects to make them look strange, distant from their usual function, inhabiting other places and spaces. In short, I like chairs to look like people, or cars look like bugs. It's a challenge, but if in the end I manage to make an object look like something else, I'm more than happy of having created an illusion.
Next time, more objects.
