historie



On DBH>, a collage I made a while ago. Inspired by vintage photographic portraits of Native Americans. Often, they mention "native american" or “unknown identity”. I thought about all they had went through from the mayflower, indian wars, the Pacific Railway Act, add their totemic animals etc. I wanted to achieve a soulful collage about their histories/history. Hope you like it. Sur DBH, un collage inspiré par les portraits photographiques d'indiens d'amérique du 19eme. Souvent légendés "un indien" ou "indien anonyme" j'ai voulu faire un collage évoquant leur vies et ce qu'ils avaient traversé. L'arrivé des colons, les guerres, le chemin de fer, l'alcool, leurs animaux fétiches etc.
