Observation Through Exploration
2017 | Digital Photography
Observation Through Exploration is a conscious choice to find and photograph unknown destinations, and each print shares commonality in the absence of human presence and the deterioration of structures which once thrived in existence. The viewer is to embrace the aftermath of success in the here-and-now reality of unforeseen failure. Left objects, broken windows, and neglected signs of emptiness are melded with aesthetic decisions in distance from subject and framing to provide each image with a sense of weight and stark vulnerability. This series contains found structures within Denton, Wise, Montague, and Cooke Counties.
