Collages - Momentos


This 2011 collage incorporates various images left over from my college years. The Gas Mask self-portrait was made for a photography class in 1995. The face in the lower righthand corner is a Holocaust Victim. I photographed my television screen while watching a documentary to create a series of images for another class assignment.

I found a photocopy of a photograph of Albert Einstein in the recycle bin at the University’s library. Using a light board, I traced the image to make a line drawing and then merged the two in Photoshop. The image of Don Quixote came from a photograph I took of the Cervantes Monument while visiting Madrid in 1998. My brother and I started that trip with our parents, and then we traveled around Europe for two weeks on our own using money we inherited from our grandparents.
