Lucas Blalock’s work engages the fundamental mechanics of photography to bring both the picture and the pictured into sharper focus. He pursues a variety of picture-making strategies, often involving Photoshop, to subvert the “natural” view associated with photographic images. Unlike commercial photography, where editing software and other tools are used to create a seamless image, Blalock makes his manipulations overtly and playfully apparent.

Blalock presents a talk about his practice. He is currently a Visiting Faculty in The Department of Visual and Environmental Studies.
