These are some photos I took when I decided to emulate the photographer Whitaker. The main idea behind Whitaker's work is to take the everyday average snapshot and turn it into an illusion. His photographs are very convoluted and abstract to the point where it's hard to detect what the image is. To emulate his style and thought process, I took snapshots of nature and printed them using a paper negative. I drew, scratched, and made holes in my paper negatives to turn real life images found in nature and transcend them into fantasy, with mysterious and dreamlike qualities.
