Another photomontage of images I found around the web (links below). I wanted to create an image reminiscent of Baz Lurhmann’s “Romeo & Juliet” movie imagery. This portrait worked well with the religious imagery – I didn’t want anything obvious.
This type of imagery is very powerful to me, but not for religious reasons. I just find it perfectly encapsulates the American-Hispanic passion and culture – the juxtaposition of fierce faith and violence (much like Lurhmann’s film actually).
