Shoes

Brenda Hoffert


Hoffert spends time gazing at people’s shoes and presents her fascination with the variety of footwear and walking styles she sees. Framed by the camera, legs and feet suggest scenarios and stories about the wearers and their activities. These photographs, snapped spontaneously, capture mundane activities but by eliminating the most recognizable forms of human communication – facial expressions and body language – they provide a space the viewer can complete with their imagination.
