As young art students a group of my closest friends and I decided to explore an idea that involves contrasts and contexts, between what is ordinary and what is exceptional. One autumn day we decided to paint our faces white, dress in black, channel Marcel Marceau, photograph ourselves, see what happened. We posed in both urban and natural settings.
There were numerous cameras floating around that day and these particular photos were taken by fellow art student and 'performer' Dana Larsen. However none of the images you actually see here were actually photographed as you see them. They are contrived and composed of various components from Dana's photographs. They are illusions and through the miracle of photoshop I have created my own 'reality.'
