The piece appropriately titled, “Out of Many, One" is a direct translation from "E PLURBUS UNUN", the official modo on the National seal. The facescape is composed of dozens of images taken of anonymous American men (of all ethnicities) ultimately creating one singular portrait.

Too Hard to Keep

Photography // Monday, October 06, 2014
Chicago-based artist Jason Lazarus initiated a growing archive of photos deemed “too hard to keep.” T.H.T.K.
