Unnatural Histories, 2003-2007
3D simulated figures integrated into photography
Unnatural Histories is an early photo series, thinking about hyperreality as a version of painting post-photography. These female nudes rest somewhere between a 19th-century academic painting of a mythological nude and a sad blow-up doll. All of them are staged inside photos of the New York Museum of Natural History, all stagings of a real-fake nature.
