Olaf Breuning’s Faces plays against the ubiquitous language of today’s social media photography, creating an extensive cast of characters that emerge out of mundane domestic scenes: making breakfast, dinner leftovers, frost collecting on a window pane, taking out the garbage, a puddle of rain. Each page, an anthropomorphic face that both regards and projects the viewer, is an expression of everyday chaos and kismet – as long as we’re willing to take a look.
Combining a substantial 496 pages of photographs with a compact 7x7 inch square format, Faces will be released in the fall of 2019 by Los Angeles-based publisher Silent Sound in a limited first edition run of 1000 copies. The playful design invites an organic and unpredictable re-arrangement of the work in essentially endless combinations by the viewer.
Note: Each copy features unique front and back cover.
