This is a great series of photographs from my teacher last semester here at Penn for Intro to Printmaking. His name is Marc Blumthal, and with this series, he cuts out people (often himself, as the name implies) from family photographs. You may think that this would take away some meaning from these pictures, but I would actually argue that it adds a whole new level of complexity… a bit of inspiration for our photo narrative project.
Here’s the link to the whole series: http://www.marcblumthal.com/index.php?/my-father-had-a-vasectomy/
His newest exhibition is currently on display at Napoleon, and you guys should really check it out. I love his work and his printmaking class is also fantastic… I recommend everyone take it if you have room in your schedule in the fall.
