Japanese Postage Three
Photograph - Photography - Photo Art - Photomontage
I used the three stamps as the main focal point in this piece, depicting (from top to bottom) the Buddha statue in Kamakura, Japan and a Douglas DC-4 (issued 1953), then Bodhisattva playing the flute (issued 1966-1969), and a 1942 stamp depicting Mt. Fuji.These stamps are all photographs. In fact, everything contained in this montage is a photo, including the ink stain, the horizontal lines, the pages from antique Japanese books, everything. There are even pictures of the textures and patterns formed as I clean my paintbrushes on brown kraft paper.
