Tableau Vivant (Part 2)

Today, the most recognizable tableau vivant is the movie still. Not unlike a contemporary movie still, these photos are presented in an anamorphic (wide screen) format - except these aren’t based on real movies. Each of these photos was intentionally staged to suggest a narrative or story. The viewer is invited to complete the narrative with a past, present and future. There is no single story to tell. Instead there may be as many stories as there are viewers.
