“Scott and the Alligator”

“Devin with Chips”

“Microfire Flower 1”

Sandwiched Negatives, Gloss RC Paper

Andrew Borsoum is not interested in doing hipster-wannabe fashion shoots. His work is the furthest thing he could get from having “content.” Instead, his camera acts as a collector of textures, line contours and tonality, which he then composes by hand in the dark through a collage style printing process. Borsoum is not afraid of reduction. He encourages the eye to step  away from focusing on “what” the picture is about, but concentrates more on “how” it is placed within the image. Borsoum’s work plays, even tests the boundaries of multi-angularity and the inner layers of composition, so its not about what you see, it’s about how you see it.
