Gus Powell: The Lonely Ones


Gus Powell: The Lonely OnesInspired by the late, great cartoonist William Steig and his classic book, The Lonely Ones (which pairs Steig's line-drawn characters with simple one-liners of dialogue-to-self), photographer Gus Powell (born 1974) made his own "lonely ones"--quiet but evocative color photographs of interiors and landscapes, inhabited by people, animals and inanimate characters.
Every photograph is paired with a suggestive text, functioning here as the opposite of a caption--each of the 40 color photographs in The Lonely Ones is hidden by a gate-fold, on which is printed the single phrase. Every photograph is revealed individually behind its gate-fold. "Which way to the symposium?" paired with a photograph of a butterfly in midair. "Let's not ruin it by talking." "Mistakes were made." "This might hurt." "Another small victory." "I am the host of this misadventure."
