Curtis Mann works with photographs taken by other people that he finds on the internet. He uses bleach to distort and change these found images, arranging them together to create large photographic landscapes. Mann shared his work and process in the 2010 Whitney Biennial galleries, and then led a hands-on workshop for families to explore the process of altering and arranging photographs to create new meaning.
