Jim Great Horseman That He Is

found photographs, scanner bed, 2018
Series of images constructed through a manipulation of found photographs. Using gestures of cropping and withholding visual information, the images attempt to flatten and critique these displays of whiteness. An exercise in mock anthropology, looking at the images turns a white gaze back onto itself, reflecting on the ways in which humans have documented one another throughout history.
