First Meeting Features Collage Artist Michael Cargile


Mike Cargile is a Hall of Fame Advertising and Marketing Executive and author of eight books including three books on photography.  For the past year Mike has been working on a new concept called “Dumpsta Photography & Art.”  This concept involves working with alternative, recycled, montage and collage materials and alternative techniques to transform both the image and content of a photograph.  His photographs contain unique and surprising perspectives that challenge the viewer’s expectation of what a photograph is.
Mike’s photos all have a cut-and-paste aesthetic that consists of found objects from garbage cans, trash bins, and dumpsters.  His photos are echoes from the past reconfigured with a new attitude.  Mike says, “It’s a way to communicate ideas through reused and recycled objects that would normally wind up in some land fill”.
Hope to see you on September 21st!
