Joe Webb uses vintage magazines and printed ephemera that he has collected to create hand-made low fi collages, no computer trickery in sight. He reimagines the imagery using concise edits, transforming the original scene into something altogether more surreal with a strong message woven within.
“I started making these simple hand-made collages as a sort of luddite reaction to working as a graphic artist on computers for many years. I like the limitations of collage...using found imagery and a pair of scissors, there are no Photoshop options to resize, adjust colours or undo." - Joe Webb
