Sad, Depressed, People

David Horvitz

David Horvitz’s Sad, Depressed, People looks at a set of images circulating within stock photography collections.

Language: English

These photographs, in which actors are photographed holding their heads in their hands, ostensibly depressed, are here shown to contain a bizarre tension between their status as stock images and their supposedly emotional content.

Sad, Depressed, People includes an introduction and glossary of terms by Laurel Ptak.
