PERCEPTIONS by Shawn Magill
Digital Collage: 66 Layers, 40 original photographs. Full Size 22.5 x 22.5 inches (9000 x 9000 px).
Modern Photography: by Dennis Auburn. I couldn’t help but use all of the wonderful 28 photos provided from this amazing series designed by Dennis. I wonder what all the creatures thought when Dennis and Sara were scaling around this abandoned factory.
Model: Sara Skinner. I’m in awe at Sara’s fearless and creative sacrifice of her body.
Vintage Photography by Toni Frisell, or Antoinette Frissell Bacon (1907-1988), an American photographer I’m in love with known for her fashion photography, World War II photographs, portraits of famous people, children and women.
Other Key Collage Elements: Generous use Japanese Fine Art Wood Paintings, a favorite to break up textures and add color.
Usage: Work commissioned by Austin TX based Borrisokane, for a split EP project with 7 bands. Thematically exploring the element of separate pieces that when combined form a greater piece of art. Also I played around with the idea of hidden treasure that forms during discovery and morphs based on perspective and approach.
