Abigail Reynolds' Folded Photography!

Today is a photographic feature to showcase the modern photo collages of British artist Abigail Reynolds. Abigail carefully creates collages by combining pages from old books, atlases, encyclopedias and travel journals together, usually of urban and sometimes rural scenes.


Abigail cleverly selects photos that have been taken from different angles, at different times and printed in different places but that capture the same thing. She then builds her photo collages, often by positioning a black and white monochrome photograph as a base layer then adds a coloured photograph on top to contrast. In a geometric like pattern Abigail cuts and folds the photos to create the illusion of looking through one photo into another, that becomes three-dimensional collage.

Abigail's work is unlike any photographic work I have ever seen and I love the intriguing qualities created by the layers, angles and patterns created in her work, reminiscent of origami sculptures. I love how the precise cut layers to not cover the entire photograph, just spread at random angles to create more geometric lines and patterns.
