I've always liked mannequins, silent witnesses to our constant rushing around - both messengers of popular culture and receptacles of our projections. Unable to change expression, at the mercy of whatever circumstance has provided, their presence never fails to delight and surprise me. It always feels as if I am capturing an incredibly thin slice of a much slower and more mysterious kind of time - mannequin time.
The current featured series, Manichino Primavera, or Springtime Mannequins, is inspired by Botticelli's painting, Allegory of Spring.
These mannequins are a form of meditation, revealing what's hidden in the seemingly banal and everyday urban landscapes. Sentinels calling us to awareness and to our hidden powers and potentialities.
