Take out the enemies inside the camp in Ascension Bluff,you'll find the First poster with a Profile View placed on a wall near to the entrance of the camp,now head up some stairs and make your way across a bridge to find the poster with an Intimate view placed on board,finally, remove the poster with a Front View from a tower to the north side of the camp.

Once you’re in Ascension Bluff, head to the northeast of the map to reach the camp in question. Once you’ve reached the camp where the posters are located there will be a large group of enemies surrounding the area, so you’ll need to clear them out before going to take down the posters.

You’ll be able to find the Poster with a Profile view on a wall next to near the entrance of the camp.

Now that you’ve grabbed all the posters, continue further north from the tower and take out all the enemies on your way up to the 3D printing plant. Interact with the printer to begin printing some of your own Vaughn statues and once its complete, admire your work by interacting with the statues themselves.
