Categories: Photo project
What if one day we will Wake up and find that turned into a giant or a midget? Films of this issue is devoted to a great many, but photo projects are rare, at least such. Meet Paul Armstrong. He is not only a photographer, but also the hero of each of his shots.
1. Armstrong's self-portraits are very believable because he puts himself in everyday life situations. For example, reading a book on the couch or sits in the car.
2. His deadpan stony expression does not deprive pictures of emotion, but rather makes the whole series more interesting.
3. To the question of why he started all this, Armstrong says that he "wanted to set myself a challenge and try something new."
4. "I passed a difficult period in life, - says the author – felt like a roller coaster literally in all: in a career (web design and programming), as a business owner, father and husband."
5. "I was both confused, frustrated and grateful. Puzzled by the fact that my silly pictures someone drew attention. Upset because didn't know how to make it a career. And grateful that someone noticed what I do."
6. "I thought a lot about what all proishodyaschee in a conceptual sense, and wanted it as something to visualize. I felt that out of their rhythm and place. Large and small. Extreme. So I decided to make these pictures yourself – small and defenseless in the world of big things, or, conversely, is huge and doesn't fit in the world".
