Matting and Framing

We interrupt our regularly scheduled train of thought to reconsider how overwhelmingly important framing techniques can be in the presentation of a work of art.

In his "Collage Series", David Lieske uses b&w photos originally used as advertising images as matting for the color photos of his younger self: and I believe the frames are wrapped in African fabrics. You can read about them here. You really must see all six in the series to fully appreciate what he's done here.
