As usual, Kal beat me to it -- the incongruous matchups of advertising demands are wonderful, but the guy reacting in confusion is really the subject here for me. I can hear him shouting in his New Yawk accent "All right, already! Enough!"
Love this. the man seems to be shielding himself from the chaotic modern world.
"Excuse me, could you tell me where the Sage Theater is?".....
The role of the man is key here for me, without him tis is simply a street abstract of avertising, but his gesture and the fact that he is cornered creates a sense of frustration. I also like the square format ;-)K
Great job capturing the typical ad assault on city streets! The body language on the man in the corner really makes this image...terrific capture!
Yeah...a ton of them. Great capture, Janene!
messages are plastered everywhere..we have to sift through the crap..the figure, in your image, reading the signs pulls it all together..excellent capture
You sure are right about the mixed messages. It is kinda creepy if you read them all at once, down the billboards. Really enjoying seeing NYC through your eyes.
The risk is that is might not be a message that you'll never forget!
Sometimes they believe that we are cows that would eat any grass. I see that you take distance with that!
