Backlit collages

Anne-Julie Hynes

These are photographs of double-sided images placed on a light table that provides backlighting to the whole.
This method gives interesting transparencies, not possible otherwise. The revelation of the final product surprises us every time, like the unveiling of a truth. Although similar to digital collage, this medium differs by the lack of choice of the subject. Subjects are imposed, only the artist’s artistic judgment will determine the viability of the work and its photographic creation.
Like all collages, it is a playful exercise that has roots in Dadaïsm.
