Laura Collins creates a whole new layer of meaning for these vintage photos by overlaying a second or third photo, carefully chosen to slightly skew the overall meaning of the piece. These collages give insight into the yesteryears of our parents and grandparents. Some of them are innocently pretty, while others seem to have a heavier or more sexual message. I really enjoyed the A La Cart collage of two ladies eating dinner pasted on top of a crab. The role-reversal is subtly humorous.
