Rare and curious objects, these portrait photo collages were inspired by Dada and Surrealism. Stepßn used decals, paper, objects and string to add new meaning and humor to the rather conventional cabinet portraits of the late 19th century. These are prime examples of Stepßn's surreal and fantasy-filled work.
