Philip-Lorca diCorcia -Heads #7
This piece is another portrait from Philip-Lorca diCorcia's "Heads" series. He uses strobes for his photography that highlights strangers on the road and makes them visual. He photograph's people in their natural environments with a candid shot, which truly shows their natural expressions. This picture shows mystery again, as this woman is standing amongst strangers thinking and looking at something which is uknown to the viewer. Her expression is distressed and secretive, it looks like she feels connected to what she is viewing on a deeper level than the other people surrounding her. She doesn't look like she is about to cry but she looks very stoic and concerned, but the answers are yet again unknown. His photography makes you think which is why I enjoy looking at pieces from this artist.
