With an obvious love for finding beautiful pieces of paper, Mark Lazenby uses what he finds to create work that is so much more than the sum of its components. Worn, aged photographs, along with anything else he can find, are sliced, juggled and pieced together in the best of collage traditions. The examples that can be seen here are from an ongoing set of personal work entitled, ‘Make Mountains’.

Bobby Neel Adams is interested in facial features, how our DNA is passed down in our family, and the effect ageing and environment have on the way we look.

Here, similar photographs of family members are taken, torn in half, and then placed together to produce interesting melds of the characters. By placing the faces together, all the differences and similarities are highlighted while also making you think about your own identity and where your fundamental traits come from.

There’s a kind of stillness you can feel in the empty city streets, in some ways helping you to imagine those kinds of familiar sounds more than a bustling, packed scene might.
