Display dummies

Life can certainly be easier if you're famous. If you are for example Miles Davis (without question one of the greatest Jazz musicians of all times), people will be interested in your ball pen scribblings and they'll end up in galleries. And if you are Heinz Schubert (a pretty good German actor), people will be interested in your photographs of display dummies and they'll end up in a book and even at the documenta.

I personally don't think that Schubert's photos are very good, but I like the idea of photographing display dummies and I do it myself a lot. (And I already did it before I knew he did.) I'll explain why I like it on another day.

Taken with the M8.2 (at ISO 160) in Genoa on July 5, 2009. The photo was slightly cropped.
