The Vintage Gaze

An ongoing series of images: visualising experiences of time and memory …

I have been using digital manipulation techniques to merge printed photographs from vintage fashion publications, archival material, and my own photographs. This digital collage re-uses, re-edits, re-visits. It looks at world events and objects that may have been witnessed, remembered, imagined, anticipated, feared, or considered impossible, by the once youthful, once fashionable models, who appear to be gazing out, through and across time.
