by Barbara Burghart-Perreault

Overview
"Still Lives" is a photographic essay on the silent "lives" of shop window mannequins. The photographs are not collaged; each composition is presented as the camera found it. The reflections are an integral part of the images providing a glimpse into the world of each frozen figure. These photographs are both realistic and surrealistic and run the gamut from high-fashion New York City mannequins to those of the diametrically opposed world of East Oakland. "Still Lives" is designed to encourage the viewer to think outside the box and become aware of the worlds hiding behind the surface of the everyday .
