Constructed Images

The images in this print viewing introduce a range of constructed photographic images that address a concept or create a narrative.

The artists included alter and photograph scenes they encounter or go to more elaborate ends to construct images that may be based more in the imagination than a record of “real” events. Among the techniques they use are handmade montage and collage, darkroom or computer manipulation, constructed tableaux that are then photographed and hybrid works combining several techniques.
