City Dwellers

As a connoisseur of reality, Benjamin Badock seems to be most interested in repetition. Although each person is unique, different groups emerge among people. For example, people can be divided based on subcultures or occupations. It is likely that similar views, interests and lifestyles are shared among members of one profession. There are common stereotypes about each group in society: punks wear studded jackets, lawyers have narrow-cut suits and teachers wear brown blazers. Although everyone knows that people should not be judged by their appearance and people who dispel stereotypes can be found in every area of life, such prejudices are widespread in society. And this is precisely what Benjamin Badock is pointing to! Looking at his simplified portraits, I am perplexed: should I be amused by the aptly depicted clichés or feel embarrassed by the prejudices so deeply rooted in me?
