THE

WHITE BOARD PROJECT

Michael Itkoff


The White Board Project originated from a desire to subvert the hierarchy created by celebrity photography and advertising. It consists of portraits taken in five cities around the world during 2002: London, Sydney, Hanoi, Bangkok, and New York. Billions are spent every year in order to show us the same faces and products in clean, controlled studio settings. In response, I wanted to take a piece of the studio or gallery wall and place it behind ordinary people in the street. While photographing in disparate urban settings the white board becomes an equalizer, a negative space that unites the subjects while separating them from their individual contexts.
