Romy Achituv A photography series of the sleeping Homeless, shot on the subway of NYC, and exhibited as temporary, graffity-like, murals, printed directly on gallery walls. "The images presented are samples from a series shot over the past two winters [1994-95] on subway platforms and in subway cars of the New York City Transit Authority. This series is primarily comprised of images of sleeping homeless people, supplemented with photographs of the open spaces and objects that surround them. Each composite image combines an edited portion of a photograph with its mirror reflection counterpart. The illusion of a continuous space is reestablished and the figures within appear either doubled or recreated through the symmetrical combination of their parts."
