tinyvices #5 – Emile Hyperion Dubuisson

I’ve been looking at this work by Emile Hyperion Dubuisson for a few weeks now and it continues to grow on me.  I was discussing it with Joni Karanka, and he made a comment that seemed very fitting

“The lack of text is brilliant.  That series would have been ruined by an artist’s statement.”

There are a few shots in the series that make me grin every time.  The mixture of depressing Siberian winter and light hearted emotion from the subjects are a bit jolting, which is why I think I like this work so much.  It’s not the kind of work that might blow you away on first viewing, but after you go back a few times, the nuance, mood and ambiguity hook you in.
