Legomentary

Exploring the photographs that have influenced our society, since photography’s invention, these images aim to reintroduce us to them. As the continuing barrage of images from news corporations, social media platforms and by the relentless volleys of picture messages through smart devices, have led us all to view images with filters that blind us from the horrors and ecstasy they document. By recreating iconic photographs with Lego protagonists, these rejuvenated images captivate those forgotten emotions. The accompanying text aids recognition of the event re-documented to stimulate the memory to trigger the emotional response first experienced by the original.
