From Subject into Object

I often use photos in artworks: cut them up, burn them, score them, deface them, scribble on them, etch into them, scorch with acid, put them together in a sort of jig-saw, or print them onto clear acetate and incorporate them in layers into a collage work and illuminate them in a light box.  Thus the focus of the photograph shifts from the subject represented on its surface, into an object in its own right.

'macro / micro', studio collage using photomicrographs.
