Justin and Waffles Book

After working on the self-portraits with Waffles over the past year and half, I finally decided to bring all of the images to book. This book is more than just what I have shown and holds many images that have not been seen. With all of the costumes and source images, I believe this represents a survey of portraiture through the past few decades. The main purpose of including Waffles in this body of work is to insert a trending topic(cats) into portraits that followed trends during the time they were taken.

July 2010

From the original photo above, my goal in this series of images is to portray myself in a similar setting as the original. This body of work stands as a survey of styles and photographic trends that circulate through the internet and a re-contextualized from their location online.

Along with this book, I have started a website to continue this series of images with not only photos, but videos as well. I approach these in a similar way to find trends of videos found on YouTube and elsewhere and match that style while using my cat Waffles to alter that meaning.

Currently this book edition has a limited quantity so please contact me if you may be interested.

A Year in Review

Looking back at what has become a fun body of work.

From all of these photos I have enjoyed the level of work that went into the original photographs. Although we may snicker at their over the top qualities, they were not as easy to create when I first worked on each one.

Most of these remakes come from silly jokes between friends and people I have been told I look like(Edward Cullen). Now however I am looking toward recreating these images in a higher finished quality or lack of quality. My ambitions have led me to new projects and ideas to digested the clutter of the internet and produce remakes of some of the finer points.

With graduate school in Portland, Oranje 2011 in Indianapolis, and some new equipment at my disposal I think we can all look forward to more work of this kind.

What can you expect in the coming year? Well lets look in the short term and you should expect something in 1/12 of that time.
Be sure to check out Oranje 2011 this year and you might see me around then! And seriously keep an eye on my main website for some updates.
