Waking Up
Project info

This series is based off of Henri-Toulouse Lautrec's painting entitled "In Bed". I took the photo's over an two or three hour period and the model was actually sleeping for most of the photo shoot, making it much harder to get the photos that I wanted. I take influences from my painter hero's Salvador Dali, Picasso, and Toulouse-Lautrec and the visual style is meant to replicate theirs through a modern eye. The photo collages are all made from three different photos of the model in the same pose that are closely matched and cropped then collaged together in a mostly random pattern to create a visually stimulating final product.
These photo's were borne out of a curiosity to recreate famous paintings with a modern twist. To attempt to see how a modern artist could or would interpret how an old master did.
