Senior Courtney Mason has spent quite a bit of time in this year’s Photo AP class developing a “overlay” process that has provided her a powerful artistic voice. As she wrote to the AP Board:

A semi-transparent photograph of creased cardboard can act as a lens to add the texture of my perspective. Or an overlay of a second image could show the connection and conflict between opposites; like concrete on skin or vines on a freeway. How I view someone can be expressed through the mask of dreamy roses and glitter. Nothing is just one thing.

Overlaying textures and multiple images is a way I can provide commentary or an insight into the workings of my mind. My images are meant to show not only the thing that’s being photographed, but also the way I view it.
