Recontextualised studio photography.


A small series of altered cabinet cards. The Cabinet card was a popular marketing method employed by studio portrait photographers from around 1860, it superseded the smaller carte d’visite, popular during the late Victorian period. Here I have used images from photography magazines, images that were used to demonstrate studio lighting setups and recontextualised them within the cabinet card, pulling the contemporary and historical together.

Each one is about 5 x 7 in a acid free 10 x 8 mount.  £45 plus p&p.
