Preserving Memories through Photographic Composite Artwork
Each composite photograph tells a story full of ideas, emotions and sometimes memories. The meaning may be very subtly or it may appear obvious. Either way the artwork allows us a glimpse into the heart, mind and soul of the artist or in the case of commissioned works, the clients. But how we interpret that glimpse depends both on the artists' ability to convey their message and upon our own life views, memories and experiences. For example take this composite art piece, some people that view it feel it carries a message of sadness, neglect or abuse, while other see in it hope, anticipation and optimism. What do you see? Tell me how you interpret this piece, then after a few people have responded, I will give you the story behind this art piece.
