The work featured here is from an achieve of found and taken images from Google image searches. The work is made from a process of searching for images and then comparing and contrasting, cutting out sections, sometimes creating a sheet similar to a sticker sheet of cut outs, and then collaging different high resolution photographs to create a new image.
The newly composed images are then uploaded back to the internet, in hopes to be lost into the mass amount of images on the internet.
The work uses and changes vernacular photography from a snap shot to a composed image.
