On my commute from the heart of Brooklyn into Manhattan I can’t help but notice the intricacy and wit with which the posters throughout the subway are altered. They are more than simply changed; they are augmented in such a way that these advertisements are given a new shared meaning due to their collective creation. Specific choices in additive and subtractive methods are articulated in a way that both references and riffs on the commercial imagery they are constructed from. The mile a second blur at which New York City operates is echoed in the synthesis of these photographs — no one stops for anyone here. Advertisements are more ubiquitous than ever and each one is selling the same idea, however, these graffitied posters have something else to offer — a reason to double-take. SUBWAY FACES is a portfolio consisting of quick quips about culture and society from the psyche/essence of New York City itself.
