Saint Basil’s Cathedral, Moscow. Swiss photographer Corinne Vionnet’s artworks are made by combining hundreds of tourist photos into one. After searching and sifting through photo sharing sites, Corinne carefully layers 200 to 300 photos on top of one another until she gets her desired result. Found on bumbumbum
‘Cowboys and Girlfriends’ (1992) is an outstanding photo series by American painter and photographer Richard Prince.
In this series Prince has combined two larger series of photographs he made in the 80s. The archetypal cowboy images, though cropped, are reproduced facsimiles of originals from the Marlboro advertisements. The artist began rephotographing them after the company became the target of an antismoking campaign and was forced to stop using its famous model, the Marlboro Man. In Prince’s rendition, this “true American” is ironically turned from a hero into a survivor.
