A WALK HOME Series
Photography captures reality. In this case however, I use photography to obscure reality rather than to define it. I look for abstraction so that our brain must shift from seeing the image for its color and shape to wanting to know what we’re looking at.
Trained as a painter, I first consider a captivating composition, then for surprises of color and texture to invigorate the surface of the image.
A Walk Home is a series of photos taken of the sidewalk, at night. The streetlights are the only source of light. The elements of design are somewhat whimsical—marks spray-painted on the curb, a splash of tar, a utility pole. The translucent shapes are shadows—some soft and organic, others bold and graphic.
