Stan Douglas, precision to the core

Stan Douglas, Hastings Park 16 July 1955. This picture is also part of the 'Dress Codes' show on at ICP. (see links to these in the previous blog entry). Apparently each one of these people was styled, costumed and made up and photographed individually, then put together like this. I found this a fascinating idea. You can create which ever scenario you wish, so it's almost like theatre. His other photographs are very interesting as well, quite dry and informative, yet with a subtext of investigation and enquiry. I think this picture is aethetically interesting, the shapes and colours give me the feeling of a flock of birds.
