David Horvitz: Sad, Depressed, People

Text by Laurel Ptak.

David Horvitz: Sad, Depressed, PeopleDavid Horvitz’s Sad, Depressed, People looks at a set of images circulating within stock photography collections. These photographs, in which actors are photographed holding their heads in their hands, ostensibly depressed, are here shown to contain a bizarre tension between their status as stock images and their supposedly emotional content.

Featured image, numbered 42-22560487 and titled "Senior Hispanic Woman Covering Face With Hands," is reproduced from David Horvitz: Sad, Depressed, People.

FROM THE BOOK
"Stock photography is a mode of representation that has kept careful pace with advanced capitalism. The photographer provides all labor and resources to produce an image with no known future, no certain use. An empty signifier waiting to be filled with content, the stock photograph comes into existence under the terms of speculation. In finance, speculation is understood as the assumption of risk in anticipation of gain. Here the stock photographer, if she or he is up for the challenge, can mitigate risk through skillful command of cliché."

Excerpt is reproduced from Laurel Ptak's text in David Horvitz: Sad, Depressed, People.
