Featured: Russell Higgs – 999 Days

A CULTURE’S POWER STRUCTURE DEPENDS LARGELY ON HOW WE LOOK AND HOW WE ARE LOOKED AT.

Between 17th July 2006 and 29th May 2009, working with mask and sculpture, Russell Higgs created a photo of himself every day.

In this project he made a commitment to abide by a series of (arbitrary) boundaries and rules, eg: each portrait must be taken between midnight of each day, they can never be shot days in advance nor in retrospect, and the default pose is as for ID cards, forward facing, and minimal expression.

CITIZEN HIGGS CLOCKS IN, DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY.
