Josey Cary

Josey is a multi-disciplinary artist who currently works in photographic collage. He works with Polaroid film, found imagery, and text to create hauntingly beautiful photo collages laden with dark and spiritual thematics. His work calls attention to the temporality of life, nostalgia, and death. Many of his images contain handwritten notes, repetitive text, and quotes which conjure thoughts of life and love after death. Josey is a native of Machias, Maine where he currently resides.
