Eric Percher Might Hate Cubicle Life Just As Much As You Do.

Let’s face it. No one likes being holed up in a cubicle, even if your company is lax enough to let you decorate your cube with post-it notes, photos from home, or even your favorite Transformers toys.

If you head to the Photographic Center Northwest before February 27th, 2009, you can catch photographer Eric Percher‘s visual representation of office life. Although the images are striking and full of rich color palettes, make no mistake: the beauty lies in the architecture and composition, and rarely in the workers, who are occasionally awkward, portrayed like aliens, or, in this case, lacking heads.

And what’s a more appropriate setting to take these photos than in the simultaneously fast-paced and monotonous routine of office life in Manhattan skyscrapers?

(Also on display is the work of portrait photographer Peter Snyder!)
