aliki braine

french photographer aliki braine uses interesting strategies to disrupt his otherwise pastoral landscape images. for instance, the top image is made by taking a hole punch to the negative and then printing it. as aliki notes, "the photographs are often cut, re-photographed, blurred, folded, or selectively enlarged, thus pulling the viewer away from the image and pointing to its surface....the violation of the immaculate surface aims at opening up the image and acknowledges our reading of it as object, representation and symbol." see more of aliki's work here.
