One of the characteristics of cubism is to depict the subject from a multitude of viewpoints; the traditional representation of perspective from one single viewpoint is abandoned. In this series of digital photo collages or 'joiners' I am applying this concept of multiple viewpoints. The subjects are fragmented and their constituent parts are photographed at an angle of 90 degrees, independently from each other, then the different planes are reassembled to recreate a 'normal' perspective. By using a canvas as a background I attempt to reverse the idea of photorealism, making the photographs to look like paintings.
