AltamiraAbout this photograph
The photograph taken in Palm Springs is reminiscent of the world of the writer Bret Easton Ellis. The character is anonymous and archetypal. Whilst the face does not convey any emotion, the decor and situation reveal silence, tension and melancholy. The artist seems to want to represent the themes of the vacuity of existence and the pretences of a decadent society. Inward looking, the woman seems vacant. The feminine figure with Brody is a Hitchcock blond. With an icy beauty, she is unapproachable and trivial, as well as sacred and savage. If she is not sensual, her sexual dimension is suggested and associated with dangerousness.
