Richard Tuschman reconstitutes the iconographic and stylistic photographic world of the famous American painter Edward Hopper. In order to do so, he constructs the diorama of an interior scene inspired by Hopper's paintings, using painted cardboard and doll's house materials. Taking care to restore the lateral lighting and mysterious atmospheres that Hopper is so fond of, he photographs the sets he creates in order to later insert shots of real models using Photoshop. The models are represented as lost and vulnerable, deep in thought, between despair and cold resignation: "I have always liked the way in which Hopper's paintings, with an economy of means, illustrate certain psychological mysteries and the complexity of the human condition". The photographer nonetheless distinguishes himself through a more theatrical approach that accentuates the dramatic and dreamlike character of the scene.Read more Read less
