Blog / Erica Allen

Found imagery is no new thing and neither is it anything ground breaking. For me found imagery can never get any better than Mike Mandel & Larry Sultan’s Evidence. But these images found/ curated/ discovered/ recycled by Brooklyn based artist Erica Allen have something truly unsettling which i cant ignore. Allen offers these images as discarded studio shots from a barber’s supreme portfolio. However for me the uncomfortable expressions and magical backdrops make these images something worth keeping.
