Three Similar Compositions

Three Images taken in 2006 & 2007. Top one was taken in Dryden, NY on an extremely foggy day. The middle image was taken in Watertown, MA and the bottom images was taken from the Green Street Parking Garage in Ithaca, NY. I just really like the way the composition is fairly identical and how they are almost the same image, but just of different subject matter. I tend to shoot in this style when I'm using a square format camera. I personally like images where the subject matter is centered, even though it is sometimes shunned upon. As long as the space circling the subject matter is very heavy in weight and as interesting, I feel the image can work out that way. It's just a preference of mine though.

Visual & Visceral Relationships

Today I scanned about thirty negatives from the past 5 years or so. I had a lot of negatives that I had c-printed before but never got a chance to get files of them. Going through some of it, I found these five images not only to be some of the more interesting ones as photographs, but also in the dialogue they have with one another. I found it interesting that these particular images, all taken at different periods of time, could connect through visual relations, along with the energy and constant motion each image holds. It's as if each image was taken with that frame of thought in mind, though I know for sure that they weren't. If anything, they were taken with the exact opposite frame of thought.

Window Photographs

Two random photographs of windows taken in 2009. The top one was taken from a hallway at MassArt looking out towards the Prudential Building. The bottom one was taken in Chicago of someone's garden apartment, living room window. The glowing lights are from their television. I may have felt like a creeper.

A few weeks back I sent out some copies of Fragments, Volume One to some other independent bookmakers as a way of introducing myself as a new comer to the photo book scene. A couple of them were very kind to include my book on their blogs about new books added to their shelves. Check out Alec Soth's book blog and Shane Lavalette's Journal to see these postings that also include a lot of other great books to look at.
