Hollywood Hills by Print Club Boston

Sometimes a photo isn’t all it appears to be. Like the infamous close-up picture quizzes you would get in grade school (it’s a fly’s eye!), sometimes perspective and framing can make the subject of a photo appear completely different. The same concept inspired artist and Print Club Boston founder¬†Elizabeth Corkery when she was working during a residency in Belgium. Inspired by the work of photographer Luigi Ghirri, who explored the way photography could change the representation of environments, Elizabeth created a wonderfully bright and colorful series of photographs called Hollywood Hills. But what appear to be mountainous peaks are actually photos of snow mounds that built up during a winter in Boston. Elizabeth’s series is now being offered as a limited edition hand-screened print that you can find at PCB online. I love the way small hills of snow become such huge mountain ranges in each print; it’s a great reminder of just how powerful composition and cropping can be in artwork. xo, grace

What a great idea. It certainly gets you thinking about how it’s all about perspective and finding the beauty in the every day. Great work!
