"The Perceiver"

I have completed my final collage for my Metamorphosis series, which consists of nine insect-human pieces total. A nine piece series may seem short, but I have exerted a year of creativity and hard work into this particular series and I feel as though I have nothing left to explore (or offer) with this series. Below is the final Metamorphosis collage, "The Perceiver".

12in. x 16in. photo collage
Subject : Lanternfly
Model : Max

If you enlarge the image above you'll notice the "tiling effect" I utilized on the insect as well as the model's face (i.e. the forehead, cheeks, and nose). I'm glad that I was able to end the series with a color piece, considering the majority of the images in Metamorphosis are presented in black and white. 

I'm ecstatic to announce that I have spent the past month conceptualizing my newest series...

Stay tuned for blog updates!
