Athenaeum Gallery

Unanswerable Questions
For a photographic exhibition at the Athenaeum Gallery in Alexandria, VA, we had the opportunity to create a typographic illustration featuring text by Southern writer, Lillian Smith. With tweezers, patience and steady hands we produced the entire piece using found natural elements (ferns, blades of grass, individual pine needles). The result is a typographic portrait that comes richly to life but lets the text speak for itself.
