From Camera Arts:

“Renaissance” is a portfolio of photographs in the ongoing “Infinity” series, an extensive body of work I have been photographing since 1997. The images in “Renaissance” are made using my unique process of photographing found images extremely out of focus, with the lens set at infinity. In this case, the source materials are reworked master drawings, mostly from the Renaissance, but some from other periods. The many-layered process of reproduction and blurring, appropriating an image and subjecting it to a series of manipulations (photocopying, cutting, painting, re-photographing, etc.), transforms the original images. This gives them a new meaning in a new context—a renaissance of the Renaissance, if you will.
