Hui-min Tsen

Hui-min Tsen

Work from Western Plural

"Western Plural is a series of portraits of legendary figures from the Mythic West. The project emerged as an exploration of history as layers of mentally constructed narratives. I created the images by manipulating historical portraits and movie stills, accentuating key elements such as the hands, guns, eyes, feathers, then printing the picture in the darkroom from a paper negative. Through the resulting abstracted portraits of recurring characters I hoped to capture the plurality of our myths and legends."
