San Francisco artist Tofu has a new series of work called Time Travel Photos. For each work he selects a set of his photos to cut, slice and reconfigure to show both a present and a past. Each work contains an image of an urban space in San Francisco interspersed with images of the location’s natural past. Instead of using historic photos, he has juxtaposed images of present-day San Francisco with his own photos of unspoiled, natural places in the Bay Area. He chooses places that are close approximations to how San Francisco would have appeared prior to the arrival of Europeans.
A finished Time Travel Photo is really one image of a single place. Each photo collage reveals a place where time loosens allowing echoes of past realities to easily emerge through into our present and sometimes even give us a glimpse the future.
