enter the wild & fulfillment issues
by Christopher Anthony Velasco
about the images
I believe the photograph itself is not always one or two dimensional. In collage, you can stretch the possibilities of presentation and form to new levels of three dimensionally. Each collage I create is an extension of that possibility along with crossing different medias like painting, photography, typography and drawing into a new visual dialogue.
