Ken Ohara



This series, titled One (1970), examines the human face up close which allows the viewer to discriminate facial features.

Ohara randomly selected people on the streets of New York and asked if he could take their picture. The resulting full-face portraits are larger than life, close-cropped black-and-white photographs that are as striking as they are unsettling. Ohara’s subjects vary in gender, race and age but the portraits come together as a homogenous whole.
