Bye Bye

April 17, 2010

I have always been fascinated by iconic images, photographs that are imprinted in the collective memory of groups of people, be it local, national or global. That is why I like this project by creative director Michael Schirner, who used all his retouching skills to delete people out of famous images.

The results are strangely familiar photographs which your mind quickly fills with the missing content. The project is exhibited at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg until 25 April and at Galerie Ascan until 29 May.

    Evocative and also rather eerie. Interesting too to look at something that seems new until your memory starts to fill in the ‘blank’. Thanks for posting.
