All U.S. Presidents

All U.S. Presidents

A composite portrait of all U.S. presidents. This is what power looks like.

I revisited this piece in late 2008, shortly after President Obama was elected. The addition of his portrait was statistically small enough, that it made no visibly noticeable changes to the final composite image.

This image was created by compositing (combining, layering) groups of existing photographs (or other images) into a single work. The process is achieved by manually aligning each image, then scanning and layering them using custom written software. The intent of these works is to discover the patterns, trends and truth that may be collectively found in the vocabulary of the photographic arts.
