I am currently putting together a collection of new works associated with the re-appropriation, authorship and canonisation of imagery in contemporary Photography books. Through the medium of collage, mixed with experimental Polaroid’s I hope to put forward new questions surrounding Institutional Education, memory and reality.
John Stezaker’s collages are fundamentally important to my new work as he uses found imagery and builds fresh and exciting works that are skillfully sliced together using two separate images. This forging of two different photographs creates a new space worth investigating.
