A Second Look

I’m pretty sure I have posted this photo in the near past. I also included an 8X10 print of it in my current display, that is about to end this Friday. What I have been curious about is the pair of lower legs in the photo, behind the old phone booth. I am not sure if everyone saw and got what I was trying to do with this image: Walking in front of the Coney Island Museum of “Freaks”, etc. is this torso-less being. To me, it was a curious juxtaposition, caught at just the right millisecond. A second later or earlier and the whole body is seen and the statement is lost. No matter how long and hard one looks at this image we will never know the ‘owner’ of the torso that must be attached to the legs we see.DSC_8754-001_2
