This picture by Hiromi Tsuchida, in the latest issue of Photograph Magazine (which has an tremendous listing of openings in NYC this winter), has sent me for a little loop.
It’s akin to these two from last week, in that it’s a Peopled Landscape, but I’m feeling it more than most of the Vitali’s I’ve seen. The landscape itself is intriguing, as are the people, but the combination of the two yields an otherworldliness.
Peopled Landscapes are a trope, I suppose, but Tsuchida’s two projects “Counting Grains of Sand” and “New Counting Grains of Sand” are more varied in their execution (and expression) than Vitali’s beach scenes.
