I used all the images inside the original and tried to make it my own art work. My goal was to try and make it look as much as the original, but when it didn't come out as anticipated I chose to play around with photoshop and make it more of an "Erin-ma femme original."
M.C. Escher's Another World
My interpretation of another world. I chose to use images from our very own world rather than those of another because i felt that many people don't realize how much there is to see on our very own planet. Sometimes just stopping to look at something you walk by every day can take you somewhere new and exciting
Here is my Art History project. I chose to impersonate the photos of Edward Weston, one of the great photographers of this country. He was one of the guys out West with Ansel Adams shooting landscapes. A portion of his body of work was nudes. I had a friend Nichole model for these shots. After the shoots, the exposures were converted to grayscale, tweaked (levels, contrast/brightness, and curves) and then altered (burning/dodging, tattoo removal, taking away some distracting background elements) until I was satisfied. I will post the three originals first and then my impressions.
