I'm doing research for a tabletop shoot this week, and seeing what's out there. I always love checking on the latest work from Horacio Salinas. His personal project "Immortals" uses images he shot for various magazines, which he tears up and rearranges into new images.
I love this quote from him:
"I don’t feel like I get inspired by anything, to be honest, it feels more like there’s this person (me) and inside his brain already exists every image or creation that he will ever create. It’s already been done inside of me, my job as an artist/photographer is to get it out in one piece. Whatever it is that I’m going through or experiencing at that time contributes to the tone of the work, but basically it almost always feels like it’s already done in my head. I realize how crazy this sounds, I would also like to add that I’ve smoked weed maybe three times in my life."
Below are a few images from "Immortals."
