Their faces are the very image of a blank expression. Perched high on a heap of sand, the two beach-going women in Igor Savchenko’s “Untitled (4-90-22)” strike a pretty pose for the close-up. To the photographer, however, their physiognomy means less than zero. Savchenko styles his models not with powder puffs but with razor blades, and he's fed their faces to Glad bags.
This scene is one of many stunning images now at the biennial FotoFest, the international photography exhibition—America’s largest—running throughout Houston until April 29.
