What's Real? Mannequins of the World

Quotes that say more then I ever could.

From

Viewpoint Photography Gallery's newsletter --

"Viewpoint’s Step Up Gallery features Rhonda Campbell’s exhibit exploring the cultural and psychological aspects of our ubiquitous doppelgangers from the retail environment: mannequins."

From

Sande Parter -- a photographer colleague and friend (Trust me, she does not compliment or recommended freely.)

"Last night Ron and I had the rare privilege to attend the opening of two new exhibits at
Viewpoint that in my opinion is what I always dreamed Viewpoint could be." "In the Step Up Gallery is a friend of ours from Lincoln Hills, Rhonda Campbell with her show entitled "Mannequins of the World...Depicting the social role of mannequins in the world". Her Black and white images of Mannequins could fit very nicely into a gallery on Maiden Lane in San Francisco and could hold it's own in New York City.  For those of you who love to play with creative ideas in Photoshop this eye candy is not to be missed.  Bob, here are your store front windows with a twist you will love. She even has a book for sale that includes images not in this exhibit."

From
Humble me --

The series of mannequins began with a simple photograph I took (and not a very good photography at that) while visiting in Fullerton, CA. As I strolled down the streets, looking into the storefront windows, I realized these were more then just mannequins, it’s life as we wish it to be. The more I looked the more I found. A series was born. Does life reflect the mannequins or do they reflect life? Do they mock us or set standards. People are the same the world over. We all have the same dreams of glamor, sophistication, confidence, humor and purpose. Mannequins give us that freedom to dream, if only for a few seconds.

Enjoy my world of What's Real?
