Vik Muniz CURRENT

Thought it might be interesting to look at some more recent work of Vik’s. Here are a few things it made me think about. How different would the portraits, these works of art from Wasteland stand if they had never made a documentary of the project? Would the work be as strong? How does having the work be made by people who reside where the material is taken, bring new meaning? more significance? What made that so powerful?

When I look at this new series, I seeТ aesthetic beauty, skill, and creativity but I think it’s lacking a human connection, something that the Wasteland series had.
