Photoillustration: Big Brother
Created for a class photoillustration assignment on the theme "Big Brother Is Watching."
I ended up using six different shots in this composite, including an image of my childhood dollhouse. Ironically, the best effect is entirely low-tech: I created the "Big Brother" figure by putting pantyhose over the model's face, and then I gave him cheap sunglasses and a thrift-store fedora.
(A lot of this is dodgy and rough, especially the disparate lighting between all the separate layers and the not-perfect edges. And don't look too closely at that table.)
