POTD: Measures of Anonymity #1

Measures of Anonymity #1 Denver, Colorado 2012

While in Denver I was having fun adding to my Gridlock series of photos of regular grids on buildings when I became intrigued with the thought that these regular patterns could be interpreted as metaphors for anonymity in the city. The massive number of boxes in the grids reflect the number of lives that are carried out behind them while their sameness represents the fact that we know essentially nothing about these individuals. From the viewer’s standpoint anyway these lives are carried out in obscurity or anonymity. So I’ve renamed the series and will be expanding its scope to include varying degrees of uniformity in the building patterns and also glimpses of individuality that impose themselves on the grids.]]>
