The layered themes of photographer Astrid Garcia’s work are linked to her fascination with the interwoven nature of memories and places. Garcia’s digital composites range from pieced together moments of travel and life interlaced with images of space. The representation of space in her travelscapes harkens to the vastness of our world and universe and the smallness we occupy in it.
Interested in seeing beyond the surface of things around her, her images of windowscape street scenes try to evoke the layered interaction of everyday places and objects to reveal a deeper connection in non-related objects. She uses traditional photography in her windowscapes, relying not on computer-generated layers but rather using reflected layers of reality created from tangible everyday places and objects.
