Does every picture need to be in sharp focus?
The Infinity series is an extensive body of work by Bill Armstrong. Bill has been photographing this series since 1997 and It is both a very creative and highly inspirational body of work. It includes a wide range of portfolios, from figurative to abstract, that are made using Bill’s unique process of photographing found images extremely out of focus with the camera’s focusing ring set at infinity.
Bill’s unique process of appropriating images and subjecting them to a series of manipulations—photocopying, cutting, painting, re-photographing—transforms the originals and gives them a new meaning in a new context. Extreme blurring makes the edges within the collages disappear, so the photographs appear to be seamless, integrated images.
