(un)framing vision

Forming compositions requires more than just looking, it’s vision with care and deliberation. But just as a frame encolses an image, it opens up an infinite range of new ones.

Using cut-out circle, square, and rectangle paper frames, I sought to find striking images within found photos inside various library books. The act of substraction and abstraction, and then of selective and playful scanning, results in a series of compositions within compositions, that demonstrate the possibilities of careful looking.
