HoC Loves // Kenji Hirasawa

'Celebrity' , a series by Kenji Hirasawa, is a criticism on the social impact of idolisation in today's society. 

Hirasawa photographs wax models at Madame Tussauds, a place supposedly filled with aspirational figures, these figures presenting social relationships both separated and intensified by these lifeless figures we call celebrities; people who the greater public can never actually be close to. 

Images are taken with a thermographic camera recording heat emitted from visitors’ bodies, the lifeless wax work models barely being seen.
