Laura Kay Keeling’s newest collage series Don’t We Know, features interesting and beautiful images found in field guides, 35mm film photographs, National Geographic Magazines and other vintage books which have been cut apart and put back together in a new way. Not only does Keeling love photographing nature, she also enjoys allowing it to inspire her and guide her collages to become a new representation of things organically found in nature. Themes she is exploring with these new works include but are not limited to: ideas and concepts of “home”, the internet, television and effect of social media.
