This is just the beginning of a series that I intend to explore the rest of the semester. I am curious about blending the human body into dominant shape and color compositions. I thought about working in pairs or triptychs based on shape or color.

Part 1 in a series of 6

This image is taken from a semester long project portraying a modernization of catholic saints inspired by the imagery shown on prayer cards. Shown is the first in the series, St. Christopher, the Patron Saint of travel, shot with an infrared lens. I thought of including a halo, but thought it looked to blatant/cheesy.

My current interests is capturing artificial light at night. I find it very interesting when trying to balance the light of an image back to white how much variation there is in the nighttime world. It makes me feel like the world we are seeing at night is actually all artificial because of the many different lights combining into what we see.

My original thesis idea revolved around the term ‘divine intervention’. As I’ve continued to refine my ideas and photos, the primary thought has slowly evolved into the small, beautiful moments in my life and the little epiphanies they create. In a sense, I have decided to drop the ‘intervention’ from the ‘divine’ and simply let my personal aesthetic speak for itself. These shots accompanied others taken from my home in WI, but I felt the shapes of the flames were really very striking.

These images are part of an exploration of the meaning of fleeting, and how the ending of things affects us. I wanted to look at how human spirituality and the life cycles of nature are sort of intertwined. It is a relationship that leaves a lingering sad feeling, the same feeling that the closing of seasons and afternoons leave.

Digital Print of Cross-Processed Slide Film
Both images are 56 X 42 and are part of a series of 12 images.

This was quite an exhilirating assignment as it renewed my appreciation of working with film. I used color slide film in a Holga camera to produce the images, which were taken at Milham Park in Portage, MI. The film was then cross proscessed in C-41 and I am quite impressed with the ethereal results from the combination of the Holga & Cross Processing.

This image is in a series we did in class of photographing the same subject everyday for 30 days. For my project I decided to photograph the same scene everyday in different times of the day, or from different points of view. I would take pictures at night, in the rain, sun and in the morning. I thought it would be especially pleasing with the Michigan weather and the seasons changing.

Unknown amount of images in this series.

I am unsure about the final terminology for my final thesis for this semester, but the general idea is that we forget that tombstones in essence represent a person. We then forget about these stones and they crumble and decay leaving remnants of the person that rests there. The close ups of the stones show what is left for the passerby to see hopefully causing the viewer to ask what they are making them remember.

These images are part of a(n as yet unnumbered) series addressing the ‘ephemeral-ness’ of T.V. Through the use of dragging the shutter, I am exploring the elements that make up what we see on the screen.

Two prints of a Series of Four

The assignment was to shoot half the images with slide film and have it cross processed, and to shoot the other half with a digital camera. The digital images were to be manipulated to appear as if they had been cross processed.

I have just started this series and these are some preliminary shots. These photos are a comment on voyeurism and peoples interest in looking in and at other peoples lives. These photos are taken without the subjects knowledge, through windows and doors at very intimate moments or objects. The audience becomes part of the interaction between being the voyeur and also critiquing themselves by viewing the work.

This series focuses on people who are pursuing their dream through the work they do. In these particular images a solar panel installation company owner lives his dream of working with alternative energies. Living the dream is not necessarily easy – it is hard work to achieve one’s aspirations.
