In the Desert

In the Desert (2019-now)

These are digital collages made out of old family pictures. These were originally taken by my Grandpa (dad’s dad), mostly in New Mexico. All the colors and tweaked imagery are from layers of photos that I worked with, flipping parts, erasing into lower levels, combining things. And that’s how the family story gets told.
