Winter Windows

Untitled Project

December 2011

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

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.

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.

Photo Flood: Old Film Work

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’

Artist Book – ‘Sense of Place: April 2010’

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.
