Things Seen notes
2015-2016

 

Further survey of the same subjects in which I find myself, with an attention toward surfaces or ways of breaking up pictorial space found typically in photographs. Still looking for moments of beauty and ecstasy in photographic relationships (contrasts of repose vs visual energy, simplicity vs complexity, etc). Continuing in this series is a shift from “things” (reliable, familiar things in navigable space) to startling visual/spatial relationships. Becoming increasingly sensitized to framing and visual dynamics in the picture, in addition to the almost always present narrative/sociological references in subjects.
