Portfolio No. 13
Situations, portfolio composed of 10 photographies from Thomas Humery.
In his exhibition Situations, Thomas Humery stages intimate, cinematographic portraits of women. He takes us into a singular atmosphere, transporting us to a dimension beyond the first glance. His characters appear isolated, yet still dependant on their environ- ment, centre stage in his compositions. It would be tempting to talk about a lm set as a framing device, but this New York avenue or Detroit diner are very real.
Situated on the border between the imaginary and the documentary, the French-German artist’s pictures, which combine landscape, still life and portraits, make us lose our bearings. And so with these shots of beautiful, Hitchcockian women (who could equally have come straight out of 60s or 70s Street photography) objectivity and subjectivity are confused.
