The Places We Call Home

A series of scrapbook inspired collages using midcentury era Vogue fashion features from their digital archives and Detroit Publishing Company Postcard collection from the New York Public Library digital archives featuring some of the places that have impacted my life so far. Places I’ve spent the most time in my life, places that hold special memories, places that honor my heritage, and places I’d like to see next.
 

Each collage features some of the natural elements found in these places and the Vogue fashion spreads are pulled from articles highlighting the specific area.
