Formento+Formento

YOU FEEL SO LONELY YOU COULD DIE

About this photograph

Having travelled the length and breadth of the United States in their camper van, the atypical photographer couple Formento + Formento continue to stage the American women that they meet en route, with the series Circumstance ? America Down on Bruised Knees. BJ and Richeille Formento have together developed the hidden story of these damsels in distress, set against a modern landscape, questioning the limits of the land of the free. Through the use of sophisticated lighting and the implicit and quasi-systematic violence of the scenes that they create, each of their photographs denounces an omnipresent tension, extending beyond the frame of the image, as though the photograph was a thriller caught in freeze frame. In these recent pictures taken in Miami in 2016, the artists pay tribute to the cinematography of Alfred Hitchcock, the self-portraits embodied by feminist Cindy Sherman, or the realist paintings of Edward Hopper. They explain their work with a quote from photographer Diane Arbus: "The world is full of fictional characters in search of their story."
