Lay Flat

These days it seems only a few publications introduce me to work I’ve never seen before. Lay Flat is one of them.

    The first two pages is such a rip of John Stezaker I threw up a bit.

  • S

    Stezaker has been working with collage for a long time but he made his ‘Film Portrait’ works pretty recently (2006 on, from what I can gather).

    Schmid made ‘Photogenic Drafts’ back in 1991.

    Don’t throw up on the wrong person…

    • it appears Schmid has been making work like this for nearly 20 years but it doesn’t matter to me personally. i just have to laugh when people get so hung up on who did what first and are quick to label things as rip offs.

      this is such a simple idea (two portraits split in half) – i mean, i’ve had similar ideas and had never seen either artists’ work before.

      relax!

  • those teen photos crumpled up are from charlie white, one of my faves. love love love it.

  • Joseph

    Yeah, I know nothing is original. It just seems alot of people are ripping on Stezaker and Wanguchi Mutu lately.

    • maybe just do some research before you make negative comments towards someone’s work

  • allison

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Or something along those lines. So quit your bitching and swallow your vomit.

  • Joseph

    Vomit swallowed. Just didn’t see a name for the first one so hard to look up the history.

  • hugo cardenas

    she(he,s) appear in this magazine
