HOUSEGUESTS
"Houseguests" is the most recent photographic collaboration between Nancy Spencer and Eric Renner. The images are unique manipulated portraits of faces found in the artists' home.

We have collected many unusual objects for years. We realized there were many faces looking at us in our house and we began photographing them with a digital zone plate camera, a first cousin to pinhole photography. The faces come from a variety of objects such as a cement flower pot that looks like Ghandi, a Louis Armstrong plaster carnival prize, a carved wooden monkey architectural support from Thailand, a carved wooden face on an African chair, a revolutionary’s mask from Central America made from a window screen with painted lips and eyes, to name a few.
