More Hybrid People

Hybrids

November 2011

Continuing an earlier project I posted here, this is the result of the second wave.  I shot a dozen or so of my friends and then set out to create entirely new people by combining their features in Photoshop.  Each of these portraits is a composite of between three and five different people.  My goal was to turn this project into a self-published book, but my interest in the content slowly tapered off until I decided to leave the project as it was.

Anti-Stereotypes

Stereotypes

October 2011

I had to do a project that somehow commented on stereotypes; so, naturally I decided to completely turn the concept around and create a sort of anti-stereotype.  I photographed a diverse selection of my friends and created composite portraits of people who would defy the typical categorizations of race, gender, sexual preference, etc.  To me, this project is a metaphor for the age of globalism and multiculturalism we’re all living in.  I plan on expanding this idea into a self-published book later this month.
