#5 Faces II (Redux)

There were just too many faces on the street, staring out at me as I took my walk down Wythe Ave for this shoot. From part II of Faces, I’ve a culled two CELEBRITY faces plastered onto the same graffiti-lined wall.

These shots seem to me to be a kind of comment on fashion – its outlandishness and association with the street.

Here, these fashion icons are presented as gilded-garish fetishes, trapped in the frame of the camera (and the wall), posing-smiling passively as their images are desecrated-enhanced.
