Steven James Brown

For the last two years, Toronto photographer and avid reader Steven James Brown has been cutting up favorite works of literature and applying them to theme-appropriate objects such as this dressmakers' bust adorned with the text from Henry Miller's Under the Roofs of Paris.

Says Steven about the process, "Being a photographer who does not use Photoshop, the only way to do it is to cut out the words and glue them onto the object one or two words at a time. This process takes weeks, and sometimes months to complete one object. I first choose what object I want to cover, and then search for a suitable novel."

During a string of Fridays we featured a single work from a photographer, with a link to his or her online portfolio and a few words.
