Research: David Hilliard

Another photographer I found very interesting is David Hilliard. His photographs consist of 2 or more images, combined all together to give a final panoramic view. They are all capturing moments of  everyday life and seem quite familiar to us but the fact they are cropped makes them rather disturbing. It's amazing how one simple crop can give us this kind of feeling. I guess it just adds some sort of mystery to the image, the unknown, the unpredictable.

The painter Edgar Degas was also using a similar technique for his paintings. He used to crop out bodies which made his work so interesting to observe and made you think about what is actually happening or what could happen.
