Art Works: Live Photographs
Live Photographs is an ongoing series that explores using collage elements and a live model in a photograph. Sometimes the model holds a roughly constructed paper collage or I reprint the pages at a larger scale so the human face can fit into it. The tension between the two images, a photo within a photo, one a flat photo and the other a real person, causes contradiction and tension. Using humor and oblique reframing of images, I am playing with our cognitive processes by blurring the boundaries between two things within one image.
