Other People's Pictures

I am fascinated by pictures of people on public display. Whether commercial, political or personal - these faces are magnets for my attention. Some, behind protective shields, remain as they were intended. Others, on exterior walls and poles, have been altered by time, weather or a determined hand.

These photographs, portraits made or appropriated by other people, are now elements of the social landscape. In this context, they are part of a larger composition. As objects - they have acquired new meaning - and as such they have become my subjects.
