Streets of San Francisco

Leigh Merrill is a photographer based in Denton, Texas. Her photographs incorporate fantasy and reality, calling into question ideas of beauty, class and romanticism in our urban environments.

I started to photograph homes, and eventually photographed thousands; I then digitally assembled and reassembled these photographs to create new images; each is typically made from several photographs of individual houses combined with tens to hundreds of smaller bits and pieces from other photographs of houses in the region. At first these images might look plausible; but closer inspection reveals that they are fabricated, and in fact illogical.
