‘Decoy’ is a photographic experiment from The Lab, designed to shift creative thinking behind the lens.
A man is photographed by six different photographers. The twist is that they all hear a different life story of his. They then have ten minutes to "flash out the essence of what he is".
Perhaps unsurprisingly, they end up with six photographs which looks like six different people. Different life story = different person = different artist interpretation.
An interesting experiment. It would however be far more fascinating to let six different photographers interpret the same subject - with the same life story - in their own way. It would show how different artists visions can really be, even when faced with the same brief.
A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what's in front of it.
