Art is sometimes permanent. Sometimes, though, it is confined to a fleeting moment of time. The Iceberg project is the latter. Now in place for six months, the project is beginning to shift and move forward in a new way. It is now at the halfway point of its shelf life and it is important that this is captured for our audience in a relevant post that makes sense for this particular moment in time. And it is from this need and vision that the following was developed.
It was French expressionism that brought us a beautiful and powerful art movement named l’heure bleue. In translation, this term appropriately and beautifully means “twilight” in that romantically saturated essence that is the French language. Brian Ferry has capitalized on this artistic era by creating a website known as The Blue Hour, in reference to the French expressionist. This American expat living in London creates a site dedicated to beauty and conversation through the lens of his camera. A true storyteller at heart, Perry creates a glimpse into reality under a soft and melodious view. Workers in his photography are shown during that limbo period, between the end of the work day and the start of their true self. With every photograph, he begins to unravel the mystery behind each person—and ultimately the viewer—as they dance between feigned reality and their actually truths. Beautiful, poignant, and pointed, his site continues to embrace the contradictions of humanity in our everyday existence.
