Michael Spano Self-Portrait 1987

“Michael Spano (United States, born 1949) investigates the synthetic potential of photography using relatively low-tech – even old-fashioned – equipment.  His Diptych series was made using a hand-held 4 x 5 inch camera and a simple masking system – a process that fuses two distinct moments on one negative.” (source:http://www.mocp.org/exhibitions/2000/0/michael-spano.php)

“Breaking away from traditional ways of photograping family, Frazier turns the camera on herself, her mother and her gradmother to confront and break generational cycles of abuse and addiction.” (Source: Susan Bright’s Autofocus)
