What Will Be of Us
by Ric Kasini Kadour
"What Will Be of Us" is a continuation of the series, "I Keep Myself Together", in which Ric Kasini Kadour pairs photographs with texts to evoke a response in the viewer. "I am interested in the isolation of contemporary life and the sometimes intense personal drama that plays out without anyone really knowing. When I watch people, I often make up stories in my head about them. The titles of the photographs are snippets of those stories; moments of dialogue in a full work of theatre. By presenting the images in a circle, I hope to convey to the viewer the sense that they are peeking into a world or looking through a spyglass," wrote Kadour in 2013. In working this way, Kadour taps into the tradition of text-based works expressed by Lawrence Weiner and Martin Firrell and the text/image collage work of Barbara Kruger.
