Photo Gallery | Art Exhibit Open To Public On Mother’s Day Weekend - Photographer Vincent DiLeo will open his studio/gallery on May 8-9, 2016 from 10 am to 5 pm

I embrace the digital age, but sometimes grow weary of the hustle & bustle of our high technological society. This has led to a new series of photomontages that I call “A Simpler Time”.   At the North Auburn Art Studio Tour on Mother’s Day weekend, I will show for the first time some of my new work.  I hope to see you there.  You can also see my work at the High Hand Art Gallery in Loomis, California.

 

In this new series I start with a vintage photograph that I search for at antique stores and online.  Choosing the right antique photograph is the most important step in the entire process. 

I look for photos that I can relate to in some way, and an image that is strong enough to hold my attention throughout the entire creative process.  The next step is to scan the antique photo and select all the photographs that will be used in the scene.

Many of my own images are used in this photomontage, and I scan small objects such as a toy fish to also use in the photo. Creating these fantasy worlds can take several months to finish, but this series is one I really enjoy creating. I hope you will enjoy them too.
