Suzanne Heintz: Single Woman Spends Absurd Amount of Time with Creepy Mannequins  








What would drive you to pack a family of mannequins into your station wagon, and take them on a road trip? Enough pressure to conform will send anyone packing. Conform to what? Well, it was getting late. Seriously late for a woman my age not to have a ring on her finger. People said, “You’re such a nice girl, why aren’t you married?” No one actually used that out of date word, but, what they were driving at was that I was a “Spinster,” and I got tired of hearing about it. Even my Mother must have thought she was setting me straight when she said, “Suzy, there’s nobody perfect out there. You just need to PICK somebody, if you’re going to settle down.” I snapped back, “Mom! It’s not like I can go out and BUY a family! I can’t just MAKE it happen!” But then, I found a way. I bought a beautiful Family… of Mannequins. I decided to start a photo project out of the Kodak Moments I’d capture with my new Store-Bought Family.

I feel like this woman's spent more effort trying to upset the expectations of her family than I have, and I'm transsexual.

The Motorcycle Gang Girls of Morocco

Hassan’s version of Hell’s Angels comes from a personal tale: He once worked on a photo shoot in Marrakesh in the 1990s. Everything about the shoot was foreign—the photographers, the clothes, the models. Nothing was actually Moroccan. The artist’s latest shoot can be interpreted as a response to whatshould have happened back in the 1990s: A super pop North African photo shoot with everything that nods to local tradition fused with a twist – from the polka dotted abayas to the camo djellabahs. The photos here capture Moroccan girl bike gangs with smug looks, intimidating sneers, and badassness short of a rock video. They’re not “real big gangs,” of course. The girls are the artist's friends, who usually paint henna tattoos on tourists in the main square; but you still wouldn’t want to run into them in a dark alley.

It's pretty rare that I make a post with photography that's topical and politically significant in an immediate way, but this is pretty important. I find it shameful that many Americans have only just now (as in, the past couple of weeks) started to have an awareness of the severity of the current Ebola epidemic. It's important that we keep in mind just how drastically it's changed the lives of people in West Africa. Close to 5,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea have died from it so far, and the numbers are still rising.
