New York is a huge melting pot with thousands of people hurrying around. But how many of them have stopped to enjoy the beauty of the city? And how many amusing and important things they have missed in this hustle and bustle?
Brooklyn-based artist Trina Merry in the photo series, called âNew York City Camouflage,â highlights that every human being is part of environment, as she blends her models with the city surroundings, creating fascinating works that make you wonder where the body starts and the building ends.
In her interview with âLife & Style,â the artist said: âI am specifically fascinated by the fact that New York is such an aggressive, violent cityâcharacteristics we usually associate with masculinityâwhen in fact there are way more women living here than men.
âHowever, it stands that there is this ambitious, violent undertone that can’t be ignored and some rather phallic skyscrapers around town.â
Merryâs âNew York Camouflage Seriesâ features several photographs of painted models, which are sold on her website. There will only be 10 of each sold at $1,000 a piece.
Thatâs how the artist described her work on the website : âMy series is an homage, and a challenge, to Big Apple women who feel the need to blend in with everyone else in Gotham. I think many women move here hoping to live âSex and the Cityâ lives when the reality is most women have to ditch their fancy designer heels on the subway for more practical sneakers.â
