Archetyped! Is an experiment in storytelling, and exploration of just how many words can fit inside a photograph. When sight provokes memory, when an image lives inside a tradition of storytelling, it becomes more than just one image.
Inspired by the likes of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills and the works of Gregory Crewdson, I began my own foray into illustrating moments from stories that never existed. But whereas Sherman explored the stereotypes of her era’s cinema, and Crewdson comments on real life, Archetyped! is a commentary of the way we dream about heroes.
