Chimeratic Composition

Another quick #ds106 assignment (tags – VisualAssignments, VisualAssignments1257)

Take at least three pictures (your own or someone else’s) mash them together into something that makes them more than the sum of their parts, something that would have been impossible in real life. Include the original images so we can see how they build on one another to make your final composition.

This was somewhat inspired by the Russian photographer1 images that were floating about (may or may not be amalgams) and a bit like this Modern Met post.2

Here’s my attempt.
Take a deep breath - mix of 4 photos

1 Some sites called her a “Russian mother” which is kind of like calling Einstein a “former patent clerk” – they’re both true statements yet neglect most of the truth.

2 There’s room for an additional assignment or bonus points for adding elements from classical paintings.
