  • Incognito

    Incognito series began on a trip of the photographer to New York, where he says he was impressed with the variety of types of people. There were people from all around the world, from all kinds of races, creeds, cultures, styles. And Marcus Steinmeyer noted that in the midst of such diversity, no one stood out. People there generally did not care what the others were wearing or doing. Each had their beliefs, tastes, concepts and respected (or ignored) the next's.

    In a city as crowded and hectic as new york, the goal of Steinmeyer with this series of photos was to capture the individuality and at the same time the diversity of the people who were there for several reasons. Since we cannot see anyone's faces, we have the impression that each one there is just one more person in the crowd. Thus, besides bringing mystery and instigating the viewer's curiosity, the pictures of incognito depict the paradox of individuality versus collectivity, the loneliness of the individual as opposed to the agitation of the surrounding environment.

    Some people depicted in the photographs that make up the series are not that unknown, for they have turned sideways at the time of the click, but the selection criterion for the final images was choosing the ones which most awakened the viewer's curiosity about who they are, what want, what they think and where they are going.
