De-Classified: The Faces Behind Those Risque Craigslist Ads


In January 2009, photographer Mark Andrew had an interesting idea - he would photograph people who had placed a personal advertisement. He wanted to put faces to the anonymous postings and in doing so create "an exhibit that represents the human condition."

As he states, "Through the anonymity of personal advertisements an amazing array and spectrum of human emotions, needs and experiences shows up – love, lust, anger, fantasy, and pain are just the first few to come to mind.

The intention of combining the images with the ads hopefully will give the viewer a very intriguing view of each subject. Adding the ability for the viewer and community at large to anonymously view and comment on each pieces hopefully will ad another interesting layer."

Check it out and let us know what you think.

Lost Soul Seeks Dark Angel – 24 (Syracuse/Liverpool)
I spend all my time thinking…. my hands create so much art… but I know so little of beauty… All I can create is sad and malicious pieces of rot… I am looking For the Dark Angel that can bring the Stars back into my World… I dont want someone just for sex or carnal desire… I want a companion and a confidant… I want someone who will fill me with lovely thoughts and who I can fill with feelings of elegant completion… We can start with friendship… Move into what ever follows… and build a Ladder of Light together… If you like to be held and hold someone, if you like to write or be written for, if you want to lay out on the floor with someone and plaster images on paper, and if you seek not a Prince Charming but instead a Daemonic Noble and Tortured Soul then please respond… I dont care how old or young you are… I do not seek someone who is perfect… I want someone who is Honest… If you are the one I am searching for, then finally there will be someone to find peace with…
…a picture of you shall receive a picture of me…

I spent an hour or more on the site. This is a fascinating project. It can really give you a little window into the psychology of these people. Amazing.
