    For many years, photography has been seen as a representation of the natural world. Today, information captured by a camera can be changed by playing with the information given to the algorithm in Photoshop. Beginning with a standard digital image, I select several portions of the image as layers, and alter them using various Photoshop 3-D tools. The individual selections of clouds, rocks, trees and et cetera become new images, which are then re-integrated into the original. This method of creating a picture within a picture is my way of questioning the nature of...

His chosen name would come to reflect that mysterious and intrepid realm his photographs occupied in Modern Art. If the famed British inventor Henry Fox Talbot was to...

    The Background Noise work arose entirely out of chance and accident. I was scanning a negative, and somewhere along the way the file corrupted. The resulting image exhibited traces of its source, but was largely ruptured, an example of the kind of schism that permeates the digitization process.

    I exploit magazines because I like to respond to what I see every day, I don't accept the found reality. In my work I want to transfer the found photographs by very simple means into a new aesthetic context. I want to revitalize the found photographs. Like in a centrifuge I try to dissect, filter and distil the images since I can create really new identities and creatures, so that the new faces and bodies exert their effect at first sight. Similar to a modern DJ who samples different tracks...
