18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Blueprint 28 - Koslovs

Like a mirror, our home reflects ourselves. Instead of conventional photographic portraiture, I reveal the personalities of my subjects by creating and photographing shadows of objects found in their homes. Each shadow is collaged together within the architectural floor plan of the subject’s domestic space. Colors and textures play an essential role in helping me portray the person. I invite the viewer to wander from room to room and discover what these plants, instruments, animals, furniture, and shapes imply about a person.
