This ongoing series of photographs started with a question.
"Can I make a kind of fucked up social documentary photography series about England using dioramas made up of images sourced from the net so I can stay at home and watch the telly at the same time?"

The next step on from appropriation of Google images is the recycling of those images. Internet collage, turning them into 3D and rephotographing. It's all fun, can it be used to say something of substance? can it become something more than novelty? Could say documentary photographers use it in some way? Does anyone outside of the silly little photo puddle we swim in give a fuck?
There's no getting away from the fact that Brandon Juhasz's images bear more than a passing resemblance to those of fellow American Daniel Gordon but I find them a bit more interesting maybe the next step on to finding a little bit more depth with this kind of thing. Keep making me smile though..
