Hobnobbing With Specters
Project info

This work connotes a dream-like atmosphere by synthesizing uncommon pairings of elements together, including historical photographs, exotic animals, and digital infrared images. The juxtaposition between old photographs and digital images, especially digital infrared, creates an otherworldly aesthetic and texture that invites one not only into the image but into the fabricated scene. Utilizing photographs both from my own collection and from the archives at The Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz, CA, these images entice feelings of merriment, mirth, lugubriousness, titillation, and remembrance.
