Latest obsession: the work of “Dusty” collective, “Wardrobe Snacks” – the series features close-ups of hands elegantly holding a range of snacks.
““Wardrobe Snacks was inspired by diners lacking the luxury of being seated at a table. They’re informal — perhaps even a bit awkward — spaces as far as eating is concerned“, explains the artist, “yet the diner always appears to be comfortable and perfectly satisfied with his chosen snack, almost zen-like.“
MccLellan’s images play cleverly with color, matching each snack in question to the clothes of the woman holding it. With a closely cropped focus on the hands of each model, viewers minds are allowed to wander, actually inventing humorous back stories for each new photo.
