Carol Weinberg: Digital Compositing
This series of Digital Photo Montage is a re-working of fashion and beauty imagery from Weinberg's archives and street art taken from billboards, bus shelters, building facades and the city which inspires her. The distinctly unique combination becomes an elaborate image rich in texture and dimension which blurs the boundaries between Fashion and Street Art.
The images are layered, filtered and sometimes made translucent. The compositing is as much about taking away is it is about adding. Some images need barely any editing and some need a lot of time to look cohesive.
Weinberg brings new life to her source material through this manipulation giving her images a surreal quality akin to being lost in a dream.
