So one good thing about our new apartment, With its white walls that have no hooks, etc in them; Is that it is fantastic for random staged photographs. I had a go at playing round with this last week, as our photo contribution for a larger family project. The photos all contained Black and White, as well as colour components.
Now that the weekend has been, and I won’t be ruining any surprises, I can put up a couple of the pics out of my set taken.
My photos were fully staged. I got D to photograph me against one of the white walls upstairs, then I photoshopped in the cut out images I had painted onto lightweight paper and individually photographed.
I actually created these as test pieces to paste up on some of the brick walls close to the new apartment. I have a great love of street art, and how it evolves over time. I’m interested in watching how long a paper pasteup will last out in the weather, and how it will deteriorate. I love the idea of creating ephemeral work, and the traces it might leave behind.
I really love how these turned out with the mix of greyscale and bright colour. They print up really beautifully on canvas too.
Cant wait to go paste up the actual paper images when I get back to Melbourne in a week or so – So stay tuned!
