Produced in conjunction with his artist’s book Mood Disorder, Young Man Sitting On Beach in Solitude offers Horvitz’s own take on the genre of stock photography. As with the photographs collected in his book Sad, Depressed, People, this image shows a man with his head in their hands, ostensibly depressed, waves crashing in the background. Here the artist himself plays the role of the stand in, an empty signifier for emotions set in motion through the images use.
The photograph is sold as a full high res JPG with a hand altered version of a Getty Images Royalty-Free License Agreement that transfers complete usage rights to the image.
