Ripped from the Screens

Ripped from the Screens is a long-exposure photography series taking sections, scenes, or sometimes entire films and compressing them into a single image. A sort of extension of Ripped from the Spines, it continues the homage to our collective cultural conscience that is the public domain. For some, I have reached back as far as the late 1800s to find the very first horror films, where others are as recent as 1968’s Night of the Living Dead (in the public domain due to a distributor error).


The abstraction of the scenes brings new life to these sometimes-forgotten films that are truly the basis for the horror genre we have today.
