The intent with this series was to isolate common household items and articles of clothing much as Walker Evans did in The Beauty of the Common Tool in 1955. The simple act of taking a photograph of an object lends an importance to the object that wasn’t inherent. The play of light on a form, illustrating a curve or a texture, reveals the nature of the material itself, cold metal or warm fur, soft rubber or hard bone. I gave them suggestive titles simply for the purpose of differentiating between multiple corset and hair photos. In posting a few titled images online, I noticed each image started attracting a very particular audience, who were not necessarily interested in the object as much as the implication suggested by the title. Ultimately, what meaning is behind these is up to the viewer.
