Last Halloween I made these. In my huge collection of old family photos, I found this particular photo of a rather puffy, stodgy old woman. She was perfect for altering, so I photocopied her and began playing.
Earlier this month at the bookstore, I was whizzing down the biography isle when something caught my eye. There was a new book...a photo...something familiar. After flipping through the pages, I found the exact photo that I own.
As it turns out, I own a photo of a significant woman in American history! It is because of her ground work I can vote! And I have been desecrating her in my altered art?!
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, I am sorry.
