Aimee Beaubien Creates Colorful, Whimsical Collages Out of Cut-Out Photos

1

Chicago-based artist and photographer Aimee Beaubien does what most photographers probably wouldn’t even think of in creating one-of-a-kind artwork!

To create these intricate-looking collages, Beaubien starts by taking her own photographs. She then cuts them into various patterns, and joins the pieces through pasting and taping. She basically “draws with scissors,” and has described collage as “destruction and construction, a simultaneous collapsing of time, space, and place.” A number of different collages can be found on Beaubien’s online portfolio, classified under groups here, found, and found, only part, out there, and off side. Aside from her website, these collages can also be found in her book “found & found”.

While most of us wouldn’t even dare let a pair of scissors near one of our beloved photographs, you’d have to agree that Beaubien’s idea is interesting, one that could perhaps help spark an idea for your next art project!

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
