The Photographic Collage

Part documentary photographic essay and part studio construction, the photographic collage is an interesting hybrid artifact. Particularly with the use of film negatives and prints, the process took on a challenging, almost accidental quality. The result could be mundane, disastrous, or the definition of the synergy of the creative art studio. The scale of the assembled images could also be easily enlarged (even without the use of a darkroom), to dramatic and impressive effect.
