COMFORT ZONE, REAL PEOPLE, REAL STORIES
Posted on May 22, 2014 by Isabella Cecconi
While spending a weekend at the seaside, I’ve decided to visit a public beach that I haven’t seen since I was a little boy. There I saw a possibility to recite a lot of stories only from looking at the things that people bring with them. I’ve got so inspired that I had to quit what I was doing at the time and indulge into a new project. I came back the very next week with all my equipment needed for a photoshoot. I started this series because I was surprised how a certain place or surrounding can affect people’s behavior.
Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern had a peculiar idea for his photography series snapping awkward portraits of people sleeping on the beach. Stretched, curled, all the bodies display the characteristics of each human being. Pictures are quirky but familiar, beautiful and extravagant.
