“Canis Sapiens” is a series of images investigating the human-dog family through the context of a chaotic household full of dog-children. The images are a combination of autobiographical and fictional narratives portraying a fantastical take on reality.
The series further explores the manipulation of reality through composite photography. Each piece is a composite of fifteen or more individual photographs digitally stitched together for clarity. Upon first glance the photographs appear to document single moments in time but the subtle inconstancies in viewpoint, spatial depth and areas of sharp focus alert the viewer to question what they see. The digital manipulation of reality within each photograph invites the viewer to investigate what is real and what is not real within each photograph, leading the viewer to realize that things may not actually be as they first appear.
Photographs from this series are printed and displayed on white satin coated metal ranging from 16 x 16″ up to 16 x 24″and are float mounted onto the wall For a list of available pieces or for advertising/custom image commissioning please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
