suitdancing!

i ran into robert longo's work while i was studying photography in college, actually. he used to hang out with cindy sherman, whose photos are fairly iconic and certainly world famous, but longo is also an artist in his own right. i love his suit dancers... businesslike people letting loose, shaking out their hair and dancing!

in retrospect, this might have been a more appropriate post for friday....





oh i love it—the freedom that these images display! they remind me of what i think about when i look around at fellow train passengers—everyone neatly packaged in their suits + coats, clutching their trim briefcases, checking their shoes for scuffmarks. withdrawn into their morning haze. how i'd love to see just one person stand up and shake out their folded-up limbs, loosen up their hunched shoulders, and break it down... all in their office garb! 

magnificent.
