Ideas and Imagery #65


This is one of my favorite photos from 2014.  When I am out shooting on a weekend I will sometimes just drive around until something catches my eye.

What initially caught my eye in this scene was this tall yellow building that was falling apart.  I saw it from about a half mile out and made my way toward it.  As I got closer and closer it just seemed to increase in complexity with old equipment, abandoned trailers and eventuall this blue car.

I love how the scene gets compressed into a singular composition from discrete layers.  Since this shot I have incorporated the process of layering into a new series of work that I am slowly building.  This new work will  start to emerge as I continue to post this year.

It's an great new direction for me and one that is producing work I am excited about.
