Sampling the Sacred

Digital Montages

These images were made in the late 90’s, just when Adobe Photoshop became available. The computer used for this work had 16MB (not GB) of memory and, of course, there was no ‘layers’ feature in the earliest versions. These restrictions called for a slower thought process that allowed for careful consideration of the various elements, which I believe resulted in the kinds of images I desired. 
The digital files were transferred to a high-resolution film scanner to produce 4×5 inch color negatives, which in turn were used to print on 30×40 inch Type C photo paper. The process was slow and unpredictable, but exciting!
