Ken Hermann got interested in private lives of performers who wander on Hollywood Boulevard (or “Hollyweird”) by imitating cinema icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin or superheroes like Spider Man and Superman. Hollywood Street Characters is an honest portraits’ series that shows these actors in their daily habits and monotone life, once they’re back home with their costumes : in front of the television, on a chair in their garden, on a skateboard. The light is dramatic and the suburbian houses are gloomy, like Gregory Crewdson’s pictures. A slight critic toward the success quest and the American dream.
