These photomontages from the series, Pages from a Working History of Art, were produced at the Kodak Center for Digital Imaging in Camden, Maine. The allegorical portraits honor some of my favorite artists, writers and filmmakers including writer Franz Kafka, the Czech animator Jan Svankmajer, the American photographer Frederick Sommer, British First World War poet Wilfred Owen and the great early Renaissance wood carver from Nuremberg, Veit Stoss. Other artists appearing in the series include filmmakers Billy Wilder, Andrei Tarkovsky, and the Brothers Quay, writer Witold Gombrowicz, German collagist Hannah Höch, and photographer Emmet Gowin.
