Artwork Description

Shooting large format film yields many advantages. Key among them is the ability to shoot pictures that remind me of the cinematic heritage from another era. This image is a homage to the great black and white films of the mid 20th century, specifically the John Frankenheimer film SECONDS (1966), which starred Rock Hudson committing to another awkwardly heterosexual screen persona. The film is a brilliant and terrifying story of a man's willingness to undergo a new surgical procedure that promises to return his body to that of a young man. The opening twenty minutes reveal some of the most dramatic monochromatic imagery of all time, courtesy of the master cinematographer James Wong Howe (he also photographed Citizen Kane). My image employs the 'chiarascuro' technique synonymous with black and white art. The homeward bound crowd dreams of a better life outside the tedium and clockwork regularity of the daily grind.
