Photography Statement

These images are compositions of tones, textures, colors, fields and spaces. Literal content is reduced to a compositional element. 

This visual language evolved from the panoramic feature in certain digital cameras where two or three consecutive exposures are stitched together by the camera's software. The speed of the process enforces a spontaneous result as well as an element of risk when the final composition turns out badly.

This work is existential, testing the question – Is beauty senior to logic, or can logic be usurped by beauty? 

 

Traditional great photographs are done in exotic locations. This work is “travel” photography in the here and now of one’s own backyard.

I liken this work to Japanese poetry and call it Three Shot Haiku.
