Group f.8: Deserts, Seas and Journeys
It's become difficult to completely summarize my relationship to photography, but it's helpful when I make things that help me to understand it better. For the exhibit "Group f.8:Deserts, Seas and Journeys", I made a series of 'Antigraphs'. I used the properties of the latent image to make sense of the fully formed image. What appears as an abstraction is in fact a fully realized counterpart to the 'real'. The image generated went through the prescribed process of loading film into a Polaroid camera, focusing on a subject, depressing a shutter, and pulling the print from the camera.
