8 EZ STEPS

Gusmano Cesaretti

By creating a series of eight Images that reveal Progression in time (six photos of the Moments Prior to shaving to fully shaven, and two photos of the Instruments used: shaving brush, razors, and scissors)

The camera presence, to be sure, is "off camera;"the images presuppose its presence and its proximity to the subject. By depicting the razor, scissors, and shaving brush in the photo itself, the artist compels them to inhabit the fictious space of photographic representation, much as the backward temporal movement the sequence evokes is fictitious in a way that forward temporal movement is not.
