12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Richard's Garage

We were being shown a collection of antique cars when I found this dusty old car sitting in a bay with a thick film of dirt on the windows. When I looked at it later, I decided it needed a person in it. I found a picture of my dad, now deceased, and removed him from that background and placed him behind the car. I made it into a pictorialist like photo. My dad's name was Richard and so is the owner of the car, thus the name, Richard's Garage.
