Today's Faceblock

Faceblock. It should be a social media privacy app...but cruelly it's not. Ever since my nights of huffing darkroom chemicals in art school, I've loved what I would call, Faceblock pictures. They're those pictures where the photographer accidentally or intentionally, blocked a person's face by some object, decapitating them at the shoulder and obscuring their identity. Like America's funniest home video shows, I think they're amusing.

This week two of my more intentional Faceblock pictures are being used in the world. One nationally and one locally.
