Collage by Mapes

If you are at all interested in collage, check out Michael Mapes' amazing photographic collages at Slate, in Christopher Jobson's article "Dissecting Photographic Specimens with Michael Mapes."  Mapes begins with photographic portraits, cuts them into pieces, preserves fragments in plastic bags, gelatin capsules, and in other mediums, and then reassembles the picture into a collage.
