Jim Kazanjian

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Upon first look you’d think Jim Kazanjian was a photographer, albeit you’d probably also be scratching your head trying to figure out how the heck these photos have been made. I thought the same, but I was wrong – apparently he never touches a camera and would more readily call his work “composites.” You see Jim’s a bit of magpie, plucking different pieces from his massive photographic archive to digitally produce new hi-res images (around 50 photos go into each individual work). Drawing inspiration from sci-fi fictionalists like H.P Lovecraft, these cinematic collages are an exhilarating blend of the eerie and the awesome. Jim, you inspire me.
