Studio Open House Weekend: Found Along the Route 2

.
Family Of Man 1

Found in the corner of a fashion designer's studio (not Michael Drummond's). I'm drawn to bare mannequins. You can see them as soulless or as full of potential. This group feels like is must have a social connection, maybe the anticipation of a wedding party picture.

Crap, even plastic dummies have a better body than I do.

In that case, they've already started drinking because one of them can't stand anymore.
Many stories can be imagined here, love it.

If you still can, try some mirabelles (make sure they come from Lorraine) when in France. The season is a tad early this year because we had summer in spring. I guarantee you a heavenly experience. They are small and can just be popped into the mouth like cherries would. I always have them plain though a tart is lovely too.

They DO look like they're waiting for a photo or portrait of some sort...or maybe just their heads.

They have cousins in Belgrade that you can see right here,

Yes, I see it too. And the girl sitting so fetchingly in the last shot. She is the one who catches the bouquet.

So poised. Manequins, you don't say.

They certainly make for an interesting study Bob, but definitely only in black and white!!

HA, Kitty said what I was thinking. BW is perfect for this series. I love all three, but the last one. There she sits, so prim and proper, buck nekkid!

I have been looking at these for a while and am trying to figure out why they are so interesting. Is it that the bodies are so otherworldly perfect? Is it their sexlessness? I can't really figure it out, but they are interesting studies.

Actually, this wasn't in a designer's studio, it was in the loft of the guy who painted the semi-abstract birds.

Love Olivier's comment. So works in B and W. A good example of how light and shade can work on curves.
