    "Gorgeous" body parts...115 photographs..Paris

     

    Paris..on rue Charlot,....just off rue Bretagne in the Marais, one of the oldest districts of Paris, is a small photography studio which, with the permission of the city, features photo exhibits on a wall adjacent to the studio.

     

    This current exhibit is a series titled "Gorgeous."

     

    It is a series of 115 photographs made over a two year period by Pauline Thomas, a 28 year-old French conceptual photographer who spends her time between Paris and London.

     

    ....without faces, she sees these as portraits...the heads,  turned to the rear,...necks tensed,..creating a new identity...often disguising the gender...

     

    ....Pauline describes the exposition as a prayer and call for people to re-think their identity and go beyond their usaul concepts of their  identity.....Who knows?..anyway, it's her show and I'm not stickin' my neck out praying that people are going to re-exmine their everyday identity.

     

    ....regardless of what you think of the exhibit you may suddenly become aware of necks as never before...

     

    A friend, who does  body-work, has expressed to me that she finds "the neck" the most intriguiging part of the human body...perhaps that's because neck problems bring her most of her patients...

     

    anyway, "necks" ...even though they're a pain sometime, you can't live without 'em.
