Aesthete Curator : Russel 07.jpg

Photographer Serrah Russell uses instant film, digital, and found imagery to create her work. In her collage are old photographs with scribbled geometric patterns or smudged with polish or oil paint obscuring the identity or original image of the portraits creating altered perception of remnants of the past, and contrasting it to modern sentiments. Russell is based in Seattle and also co-founder of a project called Violet Strays.
