One Born Every Minute

Reality shows encourage distancing yourself from others. They allow the viewer to gloat over problems that they themselves have. The makers of the programs squeeze real people into a format until they look like animals in a zoo, and the zoo keepers can inform the viewer about their habits. But nobody knows! Real life is not something you can win. I paint stills to lift them from the format, and give them back their mystery.
