2015-2016

As I travelled around Europe, I found myself making photographs of tourists mimicking the art around them. Often it was in stark contrast to the art, but at times it was a modern reflection.

A statue of the queen of the Adriatic atop the lion of Venice, wearing a torn gown and holding a broken sword in one hand and the flag in the other. In front of this scene is a woman dressed in a modern bomber jacket, one hand on railing and the other holding a plastic shopping bag. These kinds of images were a joy to create and view for me because not only do they give context and purpose to my street photography, but they participate in a narrative about the differences between civilizations of different eras.
