*****This installment of the Process/Inspiration series I did a little differently. In February, I had the pleasure of meeting Dan Gluibizzi through my friend Zefrey Throwell. I was really fascinated with Dan's work right off the bat, not just because of the fluid, water color feel to his work but the concept behind it. He captures the voyeuree of amateur porn sites in such a subtle, refreshing way. I've left it up to Dan to explain his work more, and I have added my photos.*****
More images after the jump.
Every year we each look at billions of images, filtered, processed, altered. We live in a mediated picture world. Experience, capture, post.
I love searching the Internet for "perfect images' those that have a possibility of transcending their time and place.
My recent works are collections of nudes culled from a wide range of websites - although most come from nudist and amateur adult sites. Tumblr sites are my favs.
I use basic photoshop tools to compose a simple collage. Project the collage and color in the figures.
I have been focusing on the abundance of images of women taking self-pics. The figures are striking - there is awkward and interesting cropping. I find these images to be foolish yet compelling.
