Just some personal shooting. I’ve been fascinated with shooting into buildings through their windows at night lately. Interesting ideas there…
One Day in Sarasota : Alleys
August 29th, 2011
This is my contribution to a recent project called One Day in Sarasota, which involved all of the other photo students in my year. The idea behind the project was to shoot a subject of our choice, somewhere in Sarasota, Florida on August 29th, 2011. The end result is a series of diptychs that feature small, meditative glimpses of some of the city’s hidden facades.
Untitled Open 4×5 Project
Using a 4×5 View Camera, I created a series of double exposures relating to domesticity and my relationship with my permanent home outside of college.
Still water, the physical world ends and gives way to a fluid mystery. Water is a symbol in many cultures of deep knowledge, a conduit of energy between worlds, and an entrance to worlds beyond. These are not mirrors, but doorways. This seems to be a continuation of the other work I’ve been doing this month during my time off.
Miscellaneous Film Work
June ~ November 2006
This is just a scattering of random orphaned projects from my time in the Midwest. I have a lot of negatives from this time period that were never printed or digitized, they’re just sitting around waiting to be printed or scanned; and this is what I have in digital from that mess so far. A lot of these were taken in industrial complexes/rail yards near Omaha, St.Louis, and Kansas City.
Personal work during my time off. Trying to reinvent the way I look at the space around my apartment.
Artist Book – ‘Sense of Place: April 2010’
This was an open final for an Alternative Process course I took last spring. I was completely free with my choice in concept and materials, so I tailored the project to fit a personal series that I had wanted to do. I carried a Diana Mini 35mm film camera with me nearly everywhere I went for the course of two weeks and shot places and people that represented my life and environment. I culled the twenty best images from this period, digitized them, printed them on matte stock presentation paper, and finally created a handmade artist book featuring dymotype text alongside the images. The final product is an encapsulation of those two weeks from a very personal point of view made into an everyday, accessible object.
