Kate Levy | Paper and Glass
Posted on August 8, 2011 by Julia Schiller
Paper and Glass (2008-2011) is a collection of images made up of re-photographed photographs, from ephemeral newspaper pages to treasured family snaps.
By intervening at the surface of each original image in-frame, meanings become redirected into fragmentary, ambiguous and puzzle like interplays of perception and context.
A glass trinket becomes a projector of coloured shadows, a newspaper page becomes divergent subject matter and fruit peel breaks the surface of one image to reveal another. Bringing to the foreground the assimilation of a past and present tense experience.
Photographer Kate Levy was born in London where she currently lives and works. She studied a 4-year Honours Degree in Photography at Dublin Institute of Technology Ireland. Most recently she completed a Master of Arts in Photography at University College Falmouth, Cornwall, UK.
