…I am in love with these photographs.
Photographer Joseph O. Holmes is the newest artist featured on everyone’s favorite online art gallery, 20X200. I love love love these images. Each image in Holmes collection, amnh, captures the silouette of a visitor at The Museum of Natural History in NYC while in front of one of the famous diarama’s located there. I love the juxtoposition between the presence of real and representational reality and the way in which these images blur the value of these qualitative terms.
What is more real?
The two dimensional represention of man or other three dimensional representation of beast?
Whatever the answer may be, I think these photographs are just fabulous. They would look wonderful hanging in Gaycondo, wouldn’t you agree? click click click!
