A collection of Fences: Part 1

For the past year, I have been making a lot of images in the landscape. I have come to find a large set of fences within this work. I started shooting fences a lot when I was photographing empty plots of land for my missing teeth series, and just found myself to be really attracted to them. I respond to the different representations they have, whether as aesthetic choices, use for safety and comfort, or what it is they are trying to prevent us from seeing. Another round of fences will be posted soon. Enjoy.

20x24 Polaroid

I was very fortunate enough to have a session with the Polaroid 20x24 camera that Mass. Art owns. This was a rare opportunity that many people do not get the chance to have. I purchased 5 sheets at $75 a pop. Four of them came out and I got to say, I am very very happy with them. My goal was to make images that were visually pleasing and that partially mirrored some of the photogram work that I do. The quality of the images below do not do justice to the creamy and warm quality that these polaroids possess, not to mention the fact that they lost a good amount of the soft contrast they have. I hope at one point to have them displayed somewhere for people to see in person. More to come on that down the road hopefully. I also attached my blueprint of the ideas for the shots, to see a little of the thought process and how that can change when faced with different obstacles. I also attached a photo of when I was prepping for the fruit and of the actual session itself. Enjoy.

Unique C-Print's

Five of my latest unique c-Prints and photograms from my last critique. These images are not quite where I want them to be, but I was still fond of these visually and for the ideas they are starting to bring about. I'm still looking to have more layers and depth to these images, to try and create an unique concept of land and space.
