Challenging Reality with Photo Montage with Fran Forman (Webinar)
June 10, 2023
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Just as a photograph can record fragments of reality, it can also be created out of fragments. The photo montage blurs the line between photography and painting, reality and illusion, and it can invite the viewer to enter into a world of magic or mystery, of whimsy or the unconscious. In this webinar, we will look at how found, taken, and scanned images can be composited seamlessly and often intuitively to create a new reality.
