PROJECT CARBON is a large group of images I have created using various materials in the construction of photographic images and illustrations, that work harmoniously in the final presentation, providing the viewer with a unique artistic experience.
The photograph is composited on a tattered piece of canvas and held to a composite carbon fibre backdrop by aluminum studs. I allow the natural patina of the canvas texture to come through the image for a slight aged appearance
Like most young boys I was a collector of comic books and enjoyed Spiderman as one of my favourites. In this image, HOMME ARAIGNEE (SPIDERMAN) I shot the wax figure of the character in Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas, Nevada. I wanted to recreate a comic book image so I have used photoshop techniques and filters combined with colouring the image in away that give is that look and feel.
