You see a lot of images like this these days. Actually, you’ve probably seen this kind of thing a lot for a while now, if you’ve been looking.
The picture is by Penelope Umbrico and was found on the Rencontre Arles site. Actually there’s lots more of this kind of thing on her site – lots of New Aesthetic-y pixellated, Flickr-ish overloaded ‘similarly different, differently similar’ image grids. That probably doesn’t make much sense – I should find a better way to describe her work. I should probably think about it a bit more.
But it does seem very much of the times…
