The following images are consecutive pages from my CFDA project submission. I took an old Life Magazine, as the particular issue served as a source of inspiration to the collection itself, and covered pages in gesso. This is the final product of a project that ended up being my best work to date.

I was initially inspired by old photos of my grandfather depicting classic American life, so I decided to open up my search to images from a specific time period-- the late 50's to early 60's.
