Common Man Collages

This gallery contains digital collages. I combine my own photography with drawings and found art from old books and magazines.

About This Project: This project gets its name from the character that appears in all of these collages – a silhouette of man I photographed one wintery morning in Boston Common, following an ice storm. I call him the Common Man. He serves as a bit of an alter ego to myself; the observer, wandering through various scenarios and strange places, nearly unseen, adrift, but a part of the overall balance. The mood of these pieces is intended to vaguely evoke a part of the 20th century that has always fascinated me – World War II and the Cold War. They are combinations of my own photographs and drawings, as well as various pieces of the past found in old books, magazines, medical journals, encyclopedias and dictionaries.
