The Jean-Francois Lepage Mixed-Media Collages are Undoubtedly Original

The Jean-Francois Lepage Mixed-Media Collages is a curious creation that encompasses photos of stylized models with ink scribbles that dominate the pictures.

Lepage captures the models in similar poses to what can be found in a high-fashion magazine like Vogue. The pictures are then drawn on with a think black ink that resembles the scribbling from a pencil. Some of the black lines trace over arms or faces, or pencil in the strands of hair piled on top of the model's head. Other lines form extra sleeves on a dress, or make a cup appear where there wasn't one before.

Lepage takes ordinary photos that don't have anything outstanding about them and distorts them. The Mixed-Media collages are a liberating exploration of fashion and individuality.
