Cherry Blossom Girl 2 is a photographic print by American Fashion Photographer, GL Wood.
An interesting fact about this photographer is he is not a fan of Photoshop. Instead, he prefers the imperfections and rough textures achieved with glue, paint, tape and scissors. When flipping through his portfolio, it’s almost impossible to fathom that a handful of simple school supplies are his weapons of choice in transforming straightforward photography into mesmerizing collage work that blurs the lines between his two loves – fashion and fine art.
IRK magazine on GL Wood:
When the viewer closely studies the trick-of-the-eye craft that lives within each of Wood’s dynamic compositions, it’s quite easy to see why his work has graced the pages of fashion giants, such as: Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, GQ and W. It equally leads you to wonder, what marvellous alchemy of cut-and-paste does Wood use to achieve such unexpected visual dichotomies that seamlessly intermingled and explode with excitement.
