CONTENT AWARE FILL / Sherwin Rivera Tibayan
Sherwin Rivera Tibayan (Philippines, 1982). I am a graduate student in photography living in Norman, Oklahoma. My recent and upcoming projects are heavily influenced by the emergent qualities of—and the challenges posed by—digital culture and its innumerable images to our relationship with the history of images. I’m also interested in both local and trans-national collaborative projects generated by our collective cultures’ increased use of public and anonymous archives as resources for new work, new edits, and new understandings.
These images express my surprise in discovering that Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother was the result of other, prior images. I should have known better perhaps, but icons, like sensible magicians, are better served when not revealing their secrets.
