Living Collage Studies
Living Collage Studies is an ongoing series where a model is photographed with a collage element. Sometimes the model holds a roughly constructed paper collage or I reprint the pages at a larger scale so a 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, creates contradiction and tension. Using humor and oblique reframing of images, I am playing with our cognitive processes by blurring the boundaries between two things in one image.
