Conceptual Photography

It is more about the message of a photo than about what is in the photo. Some artists intend to be clear in their messages, in illustration of their ideas, and some do not care if they will be understood or misinterpreted. – Paula

Magda the Mountain Lion

Magdalena Jewuła as Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion photo by Brad Wilson. Composite by CardinalGuzman.wordpress.com

This is a composite image that I made based on one of Brad Wilson’s photos of a mountain lion. If you don’t know his work, I suggest that you check out Brad Wilson’s studio portraits of wild animals. He’s got some truly brilliant photos. The human element here is a studio portrait that I shot of the model Magdalena Jewuła. The composite image is inspired by a work of the Italian experimental photographer Wanda Wulz (1903 – 1984).
I guess you can say that Wanda Wulz is my muse when it comes to composite images of felines and people.

When the Kitty Gets the Cream

This post was inspired by Wanda Wulz. Wanda Wulz (Trieste, 25 July 1903 – Trieste, 16 April 1984) was an Italian experimental photographer. In 1932, she joined the Futurist movement.The title of the post is a reference to «Remember Your Dreams» by King Missile. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a technique on how to remember your dreams, you’ll find it in this post: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/how-to-remember-your-dreams/
