In Souvenir, Liesl Pfeffer uses the tropes of travel photography to explore the concept of photographic truth. Souvenir consists of photo-media collages depicting imaginary foreign landscapes, including mountain ranges, fjords and lakes, inspired by and referencing the composition of vernacular travel photographs. What at first glance appears to be a mountain is actually made up of pieces of snapshots of the everyday; anything from fences to clouds. There is something false and visually jarring in these images; the artists uses this disjunct to explore questions of truth in photography.
