The Collective Picture

Vintage Photography Redefined

This new section will be dedicated to my work with photoshop to edit, alter and reform found images. Feel free to comment or make  suggestions.

This image was originally created as a header for this site. Although not being used as a header I still enjoy the this photograph and the interplay between the three images that it is created from.

My first entry is about the World Fair in Chicago in 1893. I have recently done a post discussing this event (http://www.collectivepic.com/2009/08/world-fair-chicago-1893.html), through all the images that I found I could not get my hands on one that showed the glow of the White City at night with all the main buildings. I guess my imagination had expanded what this scene would look like far beyond what photography of the late 1800’s could capture. This image is a compilation of  5 photographs edited together to bring to life my vision of the White City (see the following links to view the original images and sources).  http://photography.si.edu/SearchImage.aspx?t=5&id=3938&q=12137, http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/archives/image/282/set/search?referring-q=1893, http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/archives/image/354/set/search?referring-q=1893http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/archives/image/342/set/search?referring-q=1893

Microscopic Monotony

The daily grind, those activities that plague us with monotony, we have all felt it weighing us down as we are taxed by the sameness of it all. The routines we so easily fall into, that modern life often necessities we fall into. The world functions on ordered scripts and prefixed agendas. We slot ourselves […]

Coming Down the Chimney Tonight

As the tunes of wintry nights and romantic gift giving blare from every mall and radio station it is undeniable that the holiday season is here. Living in a country full of religious and ethnic diversity this season can mean many different things. But my version of this time of year is the mistletoe, fruit […]

Smiling doctors, inoculated with infecting patients

With a soar arm and flu like symptoms I feel somewhat lucky for having survived my latest encounter with the field of medicine. With a trip to Egypt planned and my nagging rationalization that contracting an incurable blood disorder would somehow ruin the adventure I plunged deep into the world of a Travel Health Clinic.
