Sad, Depressed

As an extension of David Horvitz’s artist book, Sad, Depressed, People, published last year by New Documents, Horvitz will photograph Recess visitors in his portrait studio.  The artist will instruct participants to pose and gesticulate in a manner that references sadness and depression as depicted in stock photography.

These photos will form the material for the 35 mm slide projection Carousel Project. This project will premier on August 8th at David Horvitz’s closing reception.

David will be shooting photos from July 22-25, 2013.  Email us ( to reserve a time to have your photo taken, or drop in to our Soho space during public hours.
