Readymade Composition #1


It struck me as worth revisiting the previous post (Drive-by shooting) which might have included a note on its cropped composition. The original color image (below) is inferior to the cropped version,  but striking all the same as a readymade composition. Note how the crowd has inadvertently positioned itself. If I didn’t know better I’d swear someone arranged the figures for an unconventional  group portrait. Or maybe a set-up by a prankster who knew I’d be driving past with camera in hand.

Perhaps a certain artist was in the neighborhood. I wonder if  he’d have signed the photo had he found it.


Happy New Year!
