Postcard Collages

I have been working on some new collage pieces involving imagery from postcards. I'm interested in the cheesy, idealized ways that places are represented in postcards and other souvenir items. With these collages, I am trying to exaggerate the cheap "magic" of postcards by conglomerating them into absurd scenes. These are some in progress shots in my studio.

Possible Sightings 2

I have been shooting some images that could potentially be a continuation of my Sightings project. Examining what the images look like when people are staring into the sky, but there is nothing there, as opposed to the previous work, where campy UFOs are in the sky. Not sure about it yet, still think it needs another element added.
