As a face lover- I just love this post! What great shots and a wonderful intermingling of head-shots from the NYC Pier Show and other venues! Each face has such personality-with a special story to tell that's all their own!

OOOHHH..I have been scrolling up and down and up and down all the faces and love them all-- I have a few in my collection--- would love to have some of these.

The one looks like an altered Diane Arbus photo - the boy with staring eyes.

There are some very interesting pieces here and the post in general is very inspirational.

Thank you for sharing,

Lawendula said...

I don't know why, but this is the true horror for me. I can't stand all these faces and I don't like dolls.
Haha, talking about the altered Barbies this morning (I mean last night for you)!

The different stylizations of the face are amazing. -J

Kim said...

MrCachet said...

Okay. Some are disturbing to me, but there's at least one in this crop that I like - number 5.

noye studios said...

Great images in this post!!! I just love the faces. We went to an auction recently that sold cast iron doll head molds and I SO wanted them!!! Sadly they went above my budget so I'll just have to read your post and pretend they're mine!! heh

Great collection. Thanks!

Sharmon Davidson said...

Very interesting post, Seth, though I have to admit some of these kind of creep me out. I'm glad to find I'm not the only one, it seems. I still enjoyed looking at them , though! Just for the record, I'm scared of clowns, too!

Hi Seth,
Sorry to be a bother, but I tried like mad to get to your direct e-mail...and it seems I can't. I wondered about "The Pulse" and though I am quite intimidated by REAL artists, I thought I could challenge myself.
xox, Lisa

cool....those would make really great molds!

Supria Karmakar said...

How cool is this...thanks for sharing..I always love what you post - it is always an inspiration.

Mary Helen-Art Saves Lives said...

Oh my goodness..this pier show must have been fabulous and I can hardly wait to see how these faces will inspire your hand book process. The faces are so mysterious and yet almost hypnotizing...it is very difficult to turn away. What a great city to live in with all this ART exposing itself without shame or judgment. I can not pick one to say it is my favorite. Thank you for sharing once again. Delicious...Imagine Peace, Mary Helen

Margaret said...

Debrina said...

I'm jealous.

Evangeline said...

This is fascinating! Great post.

mansuetude said...

Candace said...

I love these faces. Such character actors in your "play"!
Or are those all leading players?

Thank you for sharing this.

Fran Meneley said...

Hi Seth - Great post! The faces are all so great - the Pier shows looks amazing. Am working on my Pulse contribution and finding it very thought provoking, especially the art secret...been noodling that for a while. Hope you are well. xo Fran

Teri said...

These are incredible! I, too, have some "heads" with faces in my collection. I will have to take a photo and post so you can see. Maybe today if the lighting is on my side. Great stuff. Keep posting!

Susan Tuttle said...

always an inspiration to stop by here Seth!

lynne h said...

Patti said...

What a fascinating post - so many variations on a theme. I just did a post on my blog about faces too, however, they are quite unlike the art in your amazing collection!

Karen Cole said...

LOVE these!!!!

BT said...

What an amazing post. I love the rather splodgy, spotty one the best.
