I don’t know how many of you are familiar with cabinet photographs – they are portrait photographs, mostly taken around the turn of the century, by professional photographers both in Europe and the U.S. The reverse side of the photo is often more beautiful than the actual portrait. In recent times they have become collectors items and occasionally you come across whole albums of them in flea markets (for a hefty price of course) and even the individual photos are now expensive. I have a few which I have scanned (far too precious to use the original).

The following collage is made up of two scans, one of the reverse side and one of another photo. The blue colours of the reverse side appealed so much to my love of blue that I used image editing software to change the colour of the portrait to a similar blue. I have used rubber stamps over the background and on the portrait and collaged a leaf skeleton over the top.

The images in this series are simple collages made with Photoshop 6 largely using free-use images from Art E-Zine Vintage Resources and Dover Art.
