Sage Sohier Photographs a Guy Who Was Crazed in a Barn

Sage Sohier’s (2004) Photo: Courtesy of Foley Gallery

There’s something eerie about Sage Sohier’s otherwise crisp, refined photograph: That head emerging from a miniature, mind-bogglingly precise barn is that of a grown man with a drill. Is this how Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor came into the world? In Sohier’s other works, a man peers feverishly at a miniature boat in a glass bottle and another man flexes his bodybuilder’s pecs in a suburban parking lot.
