Philip-Lorca diCorcia - From the Series ‘Heads’, 2000-01.

‘Heads’ is a great example of DiCorcia’s uniqueness and originality, the series was created in Times Square, New York. DiCorcia attached a strobe light to scaffolding on a subway, he then set up a hidden camera to secretly capture the people who became highlighted by the strobe lighting. The results are truly stunning.

The lighting is highly effective, giving the images his trademark cinematic feel. The portraits appear as if they are stills from a movie, which is even more impressive when you consider these portraits are not staged in any form. It is striking the way the lighting appears to isolate the subject, leaving the rest of the image dark and sparse giving a sense of the ‘unknown’ to the photos.
