Cut & Paste Collage Portraits by Damien Blottiere

Damien Blottier visually conjoins fashion and photography in his multi-faceted collage portraits. He considers himself an imagemaker, rather than a photographer. And rightfully so, as his work goes far beyond photography. His collage portraits are done with a literal cut and paste process, not using digital means to achieve the desired image. Blottiere describes his methodology, “I try to combine imag[es] of different times, perceptions or points of view. For example, on one picture I will show my subject dressed, getting dressed and naked, all at the same time.” By layering and piecing together shapes and textures from various photographs, Blottiere creates a moving world inside a portrait that allows the viewer to see the subject from multiple angles simultaneously, creating a holistic image.
