WHAT IS 'PHOTOSCULPTURE'?

My work consists of a series of single images stacked together to create a larger whole. By building up the individual photos on layers of foamcore or metal, I create a composite image that has as much to do with sculpture as with photography.
It is still photography with aspects of time, motion and depth revealed. These techniques of shooting, cutting and mounting are used to achieve the following: To vary depth of focus and exposure within the scene; to force elements to the foreground that would otherwise remain background incidentals; to juxtapose different moments of time in the same space; to manipulate spatial and temporal perspectives; and to create a fractal image area that can contain more than 100% of the original image in space and time.
I think these techniques create a decidedly more interesting object than a flat rectangle in a frame. The hand-crafted three dimensional aspect allows each photosculpture to be unique; not easily subject to endless reproduction. Composition becomes as much a function of postproduction as the original shoot. Mainly, though, it’s just more fun to hang one of these on a wall than another flat 8x10 colored glossy print.
