Haunted by the eyes of the prisoner, I started working, reworking and modifying this picture until I got to place that made me happy. Amelia laughs at and thinks it’s a little creepy with the bug eyes. I thought he looked a bit like an extraterrestrial, thus the stars and particle track imagery. And, yes, the name is borrowed from Firefly.
Waaaay off the beaten path for me. Based on a photo from the George Eastman House Collection. It was a tremendous amount of fun changing the original photo into this.
A portrait (if you will) of my friend Larry Robertson. Heavily modified, and I’m digging what’s going on with this.
A shot of my daughter making a face as she gets a haircut. She may hate me in the future for this, but for now she thinks it’s hella cool. Truthfully, she looks like she’s wearing an army parka to me.
This is Modified Sylvia #1. Sylvia Blain graciously let me modify her photo. I’m going to be modifying friend’s profile pictures over the coming year, mostly for laughs — but I love how these are turning out.
Dan Darr thinks there may be a growth market here for people who don’t really like pictures of themselves.
This is Danny Darr, one of my best friends, the drummer in the jazz trio I’m in, and one of the best men I know. Danny doesn’t necessarily like pictures of himself, but this one was ok:
I usually do not like images of myself, but I love what you did! I think portraits would work really well with what you do, because having something as personal and familiar as a face lets one see just how fragmented and artistic your technique is.
