I never photograph reality. - Sarah Moon

 

Picture

This body of work represents a wholly new direction to my work.  The motivation came after PhotoLucida in Portland Oregon.  PhotoLucida is a portfolio review event held biennially.  My work was reviewed by several prominent fine art  reviewers including museum curators, gallery directors and publishing executives.  They were extremely insightful and thoughtful in their comments and encouragement.  All agreed that my work is quite good and very well executed.  However almost all thought that I needed to find my own voice,  a body of work that is uniquely my own.  Too much of my work was based on following those that had walked before me (Adams, Porter, etc.)   At the time I felt humbled, even a little rejected but these insights caused deep reflection into how I work, my motivations, and subject matter.  Since then I decided to completely alter how I work.  I have become more fluid and flexible when I shoot.  All these images were photographed with a small format camera, no tripod, with deliberate  motion.  With this series I no longer fret over depth of field, sharpness or precise composition.  I now want energy, movement and mystery - much like life itself.
