PDN Photo of the Day

Television Heads

The following was written by Andrew Young. Young’s studio, based right outside of Chicago, produces both stills and film. These images are the first from a longer series, still in progress, that he hopes will be published in book form.

“‘TV HEADZ‘ is a concept put together in 1999 after a 15-hour stint of being glued to the television and truly having no idea of what I had been watching.  I thought about it later and asked myself  ‘if I had this much “blind” captivation by television, who else was as well?’ I decided to pursue this. I bought a bunch of old black and white TV’s and adapted them so people could wear them. I would then put people in everyday situations and photograph them.

The concept is a sort of tongue-in-cheek, sometimes pathetic but realistic commentary on the grip that television has on us everyday people as a society.”
