Walter Alter

portfolio: photo-collage

The artist has had a long time interest in photography
and composed collages using documentary and news
photographs from the post-world war II period and
photographs gleaned from camera shop debris boxes.

In his series of 3-d collages, layers of plexiglass were
used with image elements placed between different
layers giving depth to the pieces.
