13 vintage photographs on which people are haunted by the shadow of the unknown in the hatPictolic
For the first time the shadow of an unknown man in the same hat appeared in photographs of the 1920-ies, almost imperceptibly gliding through pictures of the lives of ordinary families on vacation, children's portraits and photos of friendly gatherings. The shadow can be seen on frames until 1970-ies, and then she suddenly disappears.
Collector Jean-Marie Donat gathered more than 10 000 Amateur pictures of different generations from all over the world, and some are grouped in a series in which the photos are United by one trait. Thanks to collected or given photos came to life the shadow of an unknown man in a hat, which is present on all pictures of a "Predator" series. Of course, these silhouettes belong to the photographers and authors of images, because many Amateur photographers of the time accidentally or deliberately enters the frame. But the collector took it and picked up these pictures like in front of the audience develops artistic story about the persecution with a mystical bent.
The sequence of frames in short-run book "Predator" is designed so that the farther leaf pictures, the more I notice how starting to crawl over the skin every time you look at an integral figure in the hat.
