A Walk Through Burbank Gardens

A Walk Through Burbank Gardens is a collage I made from roughly 175 photographs. I made these photographs while on a walk through "Burbank Gardens", the fancy name given to the cluster of homes in Gentilly that I currently live in. I photographed what I saw and interacted with on my walk (most notably the friendly cat in the bottom-right), and the resulting collage is my somewhat whimsical interpretation of the banal experience. For the photographs, I used an Olympus Pen FT half-frame camera with a 38mm lens and Kodak Portra 160 film. The finished piece is 24"x18" on wood panel.

Plates: Amalgamation (My Father)

For these photographs, I took the concept from my piece, Amalgamation (My Love), and applied it to re-photographing pictures of my father.  Each of these 3 composite photographs are made up of exposures of photos depicting my dad at different points in his life. All 3 composites are comprised of the same 17 photographs, in which my dad's age ranges between 4 and 72 years old. I find it interesting how different each of these amalgamations look, considering they come from the same source images.

I used my Nikon F4 with a 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, and Ilford HP5+ film.
