Copped Images Book

If we regard cropping as power or violence in image-making, what is the most extreme form of this? I found photos that I cropped in Photoshop in the past and cropped them in reverse: exposing what had been previously discarded. Each composition became a frame placed within the book.

In the context of the publication, these images draw one’s attention away from the areas where content is traditionally placed, instead make the viewer focus on the margins. The relationship between content and frame is disrupted.
