Mirror Collage

In this series, Palmeri explores the basics of collage by simply cutting an image in half and rearranging how the pieces fit back together. She used an found yearbook containing images from a Christian college in Texas from the 1950s to experiment with portraiture while she worked with Dorian Studio Photography. Later using her own family photos and images from her childhood, Palmeri used collage and composition to explore identity, spatial relationships and self awareness.
