This is an "installation view" of a 1/4 scale mock-up from a new project I'm working on (hanging in checkout for those interested). The full size prints were originally going to be 32"x40", but due to financial constraints I may shrink them down to 24"x30". We'll see. The series is kind of an exploration of written communication and its dominance in our culture. I'm intrigued by the idea that the act of reading text about an event or scene becomes more important than the experience itself. Each print will contain excerpts of journal entries written while taking the photographs within the white rectangles. The statement's still fairly abstract, but that's the basic idea. Here are a few more images from the series. Thoughts?
