Études-Tableaux is a new body of work born out of a desire to merge photographic images with typographic art. The underlying images of ballet dancers in rehearsal suggest the idea of exercise and repetition, thus "Études". "Tableaux" means paintings, pictures, and representations of scenes from a story. Each image consists of two layers of composition. One layer is the photographic image itself. The other is the lettering composition, which should be artistic on its own, integrate well with the underlying photograph and enhance it.
