Self-taught photographer Zeren Badar describes his latest photography project, Accident Series as “rich, conceptual, sensual and anti-formal” turning “pre-existing works of art into Duchampian ready-mades”. Indeed he is exploring his Dada influences with a peculiar combination of photography, painting & collage. These collages are made with found objects, covered in food, laced in strong shadows and layering effects to give a three dimensional sense to his work.
Badar hopes these copies of old masters paintings will evoke the viewers memory. The artist explains, “By using unexpected juxtapositions of objects, I try to create ambiguity and pull viewers attention deeper into my photographs.”
*Zeren Badar is a self-taught photographer who lives currently in NYC. He is originally from Turkey. He is obsessed with art.
