Spanish photographer Marc Vicens wanted to capture the stress and pain of the ongoing economic crisis, so he found a bunch of unemployed people and asked them to hang upside-down for right-side-up portraits. His goal of the series, titled “Hanging,” was to creatively portray the feeling of anxiety that dominates the daily life of these individuals.
Here are some more of the photographs in the set:
You can find the rest of the project over on Vicens’ website.
If you’re a fan of this concept, check out this series of upside-down portraits by Bruton Stroube Studios that we featured a couple of years ago. The idea is similar, but the results were much more bizarre.
