Annie Blown: Photography

Charlie Chaplin, Mr. Fez, Baker and Gypsy are all the same person. Or are they? Annie Blown exhibits four expressionless portraits of her father masked into four separate personalities, portraying his abundance of taking on several characters yet remaining himself. 

Initially I observed the sitter as some kind of criminal disguising himself in what may appear to be photo booth pictures, due to the crisp grayscale quality Annie Blown has achieved.

Is he deliberately impassive? Interestingly, Annie claims her father is a natural entertainer. Though this is not immediately apparent in her documentation, with expressions absent, somehow her father maintains each characters' essence in a single, simple, straightforward arrangement. Perhaps he just has 'one of those faces', adaptable to any personality.

I love series, and this kind of exploration about what we have closer are really impressive. Excellent.
