Marc Yankus

Marc Yankus digitally layers textures scanned from tintypes, books, and other objects with his original images in a superimposition of old and new, and the results serve as a metaphor for his wider conceptual interests. His fine art and publishing experience spans more than twenty-five years, and his work has been included in exhibitions at The Brooklyn Museum, Exit Art, The Library of Congress, and the New York gallery ClampArt. Yankus’s images have been used as book covers and theatrical posters and have appeared on covers and inside publications ranging from The Atlantic Monthly to Photo District News.



A twilight bike ride was an ideal opportunity for a handheld grab shot of city lights on Manhattan’s West Side. Yankus purposely defocused his camera when shooting and let the automatic camera settings do the rest. This composition is cropped from a 35mm horizontal to eliminate distracting elements at the side. After scanning the slide to bring it into a digital workflow, he layered a texture on top and adjusted the hue from red to a more orange tone to suit his color palette.
