MOMENTS | Collage: Artist David Brandon Geeting’s Cut-And-Paste Free Photo Collages

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

When we think of collage, we usually expect some kind of physical or digital cut-and-pasting of images. Artist David Brandon Geeting takes a different approach, using his background as a photographer to put together a collage of objects “that really shouldn’t be together.” His photo collages of objects include these odd combinations: a plastic bag with sunglasses, a cherub statue spearing a piece of white bread, and a foot dialing a telephone, amongst others. The pieces also have titles like “Garlic Belt,” “Rainbow Mug with Lenses and Asparagus,” and “Statue Bread,” doubling down as both title and description. The names are almost whimsical in their practicality. Geeting just released a new book Infinite Power, a collection of three years of the Brooklyn-based artist’s work, or as he puts it, a “complex collection of nothing.”
