There was a period in Cindy Sherman’s career where she got sick of putting on all the makeup, wigs and prosthetics. She was sick of appearing in her pictures, in spite of the public’s expectations. So she experimented with pictures where only parts of her body were in frame, or she was just a reflection in sunglasses, really fragmented appearances.
I can totally relate and this series was what I shot during my “I don’t want to appear on camera” phase.
I thought about ninjas and how everyone thinks they’re so stealthily. But black is only effective when on black. To me, the deadliest ninja would be one who could blend in with any pattern, no matter how crazy.
So here now are The Invisibles, a series I did a couple months ago. There was no Photoshop involved at all, just lots and lots of fabric.
