Digital Photo montage. Expressing joy for life.
This is a testament to how beautiful age is.
For this vibrant image, that is bursting with life, I first took photos of rust - a beautiful, ever changing sign of aging - on an outdoor container. Digitally enhancing and layering it with a rugged landscape, that bears the ruts of weathering all kinds of conditions. Then I added layers of colorful hand painted fabrics. In the last step I merged all of these layers into one.
It's like us - we are made up of all kinds of stories, memories, images, marks of weathering storms and sunshine throughout our life. They all merge into making us into the colorful, vibrant beings that we are. With Joy for Life - no matter what.
