I took these photographs in museums in San Francisco, Paris, and Lisbon. They my own close up detail images of paintings I've seen irl. The screen and camera are like tiny windows to the world and I'm selecting parts of these paintings, at almost actual size, hinting at the larger work around it. The details and materiality of the paint are usually lost in image searches. I'm selecting work and framing details that deliberately look great on smart phone screens.
