The ensemble presented here, which consists of an object and a photograph of it, is a fine and characteristic example of Przyborek’s art. Przyborek first draws, then builds, and finally photographs his unique set-ups. The Portraits series consists of 7 photographs, which were made in Arles, France. Some of the unique objects used for producing the final prints are extant, as is the case with this one.
The photograph has been widely exhibited.
