This body of work comes from Orenstein’s interest in the symbiotic relationship between words and photography. He observes that when text and photographic image are joined or juxtaposed they form a different message than what they would convey within their own authority. Each penetrates the other, deepening insight and association and resonating with us in ways the image or text alone would not.

Combining the graphic power of typography, the informationally driven messaging of a poster or a slogan with the optical qualities of a lens within the photographic form they probe the assumptions we make in consuming content and information.
