Old is New - Elaine Phong
For this project, I thought it would be an interesting idea if I recreated a scene taken place during the Vietnam War. My family has a lot of history with this war and I still have a lot of questions to ask but it's always a touchy subject for my parents and grandparents. I'm just really thankful for all the sacrifices they made in order to come to America in order to provide the next generation with a happier life.
I had a lot of fun messing around with textures, smudging and blurring areas, and layering. My goal is to get the viewer to think it is an original old photograph taken during the war in the 1960s-70s
