These are the latest images in a series I’ve been working on for a few years: people encountering art. They were shot recently in galleries in New York and San Francisco. The project involves photographing people circulating through museums and galleries encountering works of art. I’m looking for odd behaviour, coincidences, moments, it’s humour plus sociology. I plan to self-publish it in a Blurb book. I realize I’m not the first to explore this territory: Elliott Erwitt produced a book called Museum Watching in 1999, and Tim Davis brought out Permanent Collection more recently.
