Following up on the Modern Hero series and Parts One and Two of Wish You Were Here, Troy Wise is back with a series called “Neighborhood Threat.” Wise, with the help of stylist Rick Guzman, shoots a model wearing teamm8 underwear and Ristefsky Macheda underwear in a suburban backyard straight from a Yates novel. Troy Wise’s strength as a photographer appears to be his ability to induce feelings of nostalgia without over-glamorizing past eras. Neighborhood Threat is the perfect example. There’s an appealing simplicity to the composition of the setting: a ball, a hose, and a tree to climb. It’s sweet and pleasant, but Wise uses the provocative word “threat” in the title. We can look at these images and reminisce about the simplicity and innocence of childhood, but we also know that all things pass including that youthful state of naiveté. Does Wise intend the model to be the threat, or is the passage of time and subsequent loss of innocence the real danger depicted?
