an excerpt from Laughing Squid -
During his travels over the past four years, San Francisco-based artist Bernard Bolter has been creating digital photo composites of each city he visits for his "Digital City Series". The composite images do not depict an actual location in a given city, but rather several locations that are seamlessly blended into one image.
ABOUT THE DIGITAL CITY SERIES
The Digital City Series is a photographic project of digitally constructed city portraits from around the world. These portraits are created by splicing together diverse scenes from each city to form a singular square composition. The images are composed in a seamless fashion that invite the viewer to enter the picture and experience different parts of the city as one.
In the modern Digital Age, it is now possible to manipulate the photographic image with greater detail and accuracy. This series takes inspiration from the cubists and strives to represent a greater context through multiple viewpoints, but uses digital technology to make the image smoother.
ABOUT BERNARD BOLTER
Originally from San Francisco, California, Bernard Bolter studied art in Amsterdam and Utrecht in the Netherlands. He has exhibited and presented his work in North America, Europe, Asia and was a founder member of the New York based traveling art group, Art Collision.
