Mad House

An update for Robert Capa’s Mussolini photograph from the early 1940’s, Mad House features Capa’s solitary figure and sidewalk. I’ve added the silhouettes of 4 little boys running in the opposite direction and blurred them to reinforce the concept of movement but which also gives the children’s figures another point of dissimilarity to the grown man.  The background image is an abstract acrylic painting on paper which, in it’s original state, is rendered in blues and yellows but in Mad House the colors are highly desaturated and a sepia tint was added. The writing on the wall is similar to the original sentiment but again updated to show present concerns.
