My Plastic People
This set belongs to my most personal and ambitious project so far. I try to give dignity and humanity to the plastic people all around the world. As a street and travel photographer, I have had the chance to take photos of shop windows in many cities, and there I have found the inspiration for these images. They tell me tales and stories about life. They always show me their human substance. Every photo creates a fantasy. Their faces, looks, eyes, clothes, shadows, and reflections portray them as the modern society.
Seigar is an English philologist, a high school teacher, and a curious photographer. He is a fetishist for reflections, saturated colors, details, and religious icons. He feels a passion for pop culture that comes through in his work. Seigar considers himself a traveler and an urban street photographer. His aim as an artist is to tell tales with his camera, to capture moments, but give them a new frame and perspective. Traveling is his inspiration. However, he tries to show more than mere postcards from his visits, creating a continuous conceptual line story from his trips. The details and subject matters come to his camera once and once again, almost becoming an obsession. His most ambitious project so far is “Plastic People", a series that focuses on the humanization of the mannequins he finds in shop windows all over the world. Seigar has participated in several exhibitions in Tenerife and his works have also been featured in international publications.
