Jibade-Khalil Huffman

Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s photo works are experimentations relating archives and collage to nostalgia and memory. They are made by layering scanned fragments of found magazines, encyclopedias, and instruction manuals which are then cut away, layer by layer, section by section, to produce a new composition. While indebted to painting, drawing and collage, their output as photographs is key, as the scanning process allows for a parsing of the material of paper in its various stages of aging as opposed to a representation of this.
