Objects in Mirror are Closer than they Appear
Jack Casto is a New York-based photographer and filmmaker. His work draws influence from fashion and cinema, often combining elements of both within his projects. A theme that often shows up in Jack’s work is voyeurism. Through his work, he examines the idea of what is public versus private. Currently he is finishing his series titled "Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear," where he is photographing cinematic stills of cars, and creating scenarios with people in and around the cars, living their lives as if no one is watching.
Through the lens of cinematic photographs I am creating a world in my work that is harsh and voyeuristic. Examining the public vs private relationship of cars, and how people interact within that space. Combining surveillance style photographs such as traffic lights, private investigation images, and paired alongside staged narratives, I am crafting elaborate moments within the cars. I am taking drives at night, photographing what I see from my vehicle, using my headlights as a direct interference into other peoples spaces. “Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear” is a cohesive look into how the car itself is a vehicle for voyeurism.
