The photos of John Manno rely on repetition to achieve their aesthetic aim. Utilizing repetition as a strategic tool allows him to insert any arhythmic deviation from the sense of repetition into the picture’s foreground.

This is exactly how the photo titled Misbegotten Places #3 operates: series of open doors establishes the rhythm of the work, and a series of numbered signs is placed above each door. The fact that the third door has its sign removed lends it an uncanny aspect, impossible to not notice and still unsettling in relation to the effect achieved.
