These have been through a lot to get here. Every picture here is a panorama stitched together from at least two images. In a sense, none of these pictures ever really happened, since they are composed of different moments, but so is the world you see when you look around. I’ve always wanted to create close up panoramas which practically sounds self canceling. In most of these I had to trim out tons of stuff that didn’t fit smoothly because taking panorama shots in close creates very messy shapes. After stitching they’ve been tweaked and poked in Illustrator and Photoshop. My photos but some from many years ago. I have no talent or patience as a painter, but these are in a very painterly mood.
