The series of collage works from In Vogue draws visual inspiration from religious iconographies as well as art history and the art and design industry. The source imagery selected was cut from magazines and assembled back together intentionally aiming to mimic overused techniques
in commercial advertising. This self-aware collage work is not only an attempt to emulate these tropes, but to also comment on the banality of their cliché nature. The creation of physical collage is a response to a similar collage aesthetic found in the artist’s street photography, specifically his portfolio Playing Atget .

"The collage series In Vogue addresses pop culture by acting as a mirror reflection of the magazines they were cut from. The final constructions draw inspiration from Pop Art, specifically the handmade collage works of Lichtenstein and Warhol. When synthesizing the works I wanted to refer to religious iconography and took a more Classical compositional approach. Pop and Classical aesthetic elements may have been the main inspiration for these works, but the final collages are more connected to the continuation of my practice of New New Photography."
