The evolution from childhood collages, I’m thinking it looks gorgeous, but is it really that complicated? I shall work a bit more on my photoshop skills and tell you at another point.
Update, Erin was so kind to comment and shed light on the whole photoshop situation. Turns out that the two photos I liked best are actually done by hand.
“To answer your question, no the 7 digital images (Haircuts) you’ve included here are not very complicated at all. They’re part of a collaborative series with the fine art photographer Andrew Tamlyn. He went on a road trip out west and took all of these great Instagram landscape photos, as he traveled from one tourist destination to the next. The collages were done very quickly, and are quite simple. The idea was to create collage works that were almost as instant as the production of the landscape photos. The other 4 works you have featured here, including your two favorites, are not digital but are hand-cut paper collages. They are worlds more complicated than a digital collage, but still the level of complication is not what is important. It is the expression, if a collage has the ability to evoke a feeling, I consider it a successful work. ”
