The final effect of this smorgasbord of imagery was to see a single overall emotional state that seems to pervade all of DiCorcia's work, which I wasn't particularly aware of until I saw all of the images together. Regardless of the subject matter, there is very little joy in the world he has captured. There is plenty of isolation, and shadowy loneliness, and deadpan boredom, regardless of whether it was staged or captured live. I must admit that this mood (when I recognized it) dampened my enjoyment of the many treasures to be found in the mixed bag along the aluminum rail.
Collector's POV: The thousand images in this exhibit are not for sale individually, but are being sold as one installation (I didn't ask the price). DiCorcia's work is widely available at auction, typically selling in the range between $10000 and $50000, with an outlier here and there.
