Stunning Large Scale Collages Composed from Thousands of Hand Cut Photographs

Brazilian artist and photographer Vik Muniz makes art from pretty much anything, be it shredded paper, wire, food or various found objects. His latest solo exhibition titled" Album" on view at Sikkema Jenkins Gallery from April 10 through May 10, 2014, features a series of large scale collages made from found photographs collected by Muniz over a number of years. The images, many treated in sepia tone, are of familiar scenes that may be found in family photo albums. From the press release, " This current body of work focuses on the materiality of the photograph, drawing attention to the ways in which the physical character of the image is lost as we shift toward digital technologies and new modes of viewing.
