Floating Islands : Photomanipulation and Digital Collage

This is a Digital Collage from my ‘Floating Islands’ series – incorporating old black and white engravings of fish which I digitally painted, original stamps made in Photoshop, and digitally manipulated photographs of beautiful beach scenes which I took during my travels in Puerto Rico.

This series was inspired by my wife (a Puerto Rican visual artist and writer who is concerned with the concept of “Floating Communities, Islands, and Migration”).

It is also dedicated to those who are looking for an imaginary place or community of peace and harmony to call home.

This work and others from the series are available for sale at my art store here.
