“My work unites photography, performance, and collage to question image making. Using a camera, and when needed a scissors or roll of tape, I analyze traditional, setup, and manipulated photography by hand without the use of Photoshop. Photography is not only a window to the world but a systematic-driven tool. All works are a single photograph constructed in the studio; I cut, carve, fold, glue, and stack photographs. This layering process involves printed photographs that are then re-photographed; layering images on top of images in most cases multiple times.” Jennifer Grimyser
