I wished to create a work that thoughtfully captured the world in which I have created. My room and home are fully of beautiful and interesting items which I do not appreciate regularly. Photos that make the eye wander and the mind question are my favorites. I wanted to document the beauty around me as a way of coping with being confined to my environment. Living in a positive environment where I feel secure is a blessing that I must appreciate during this difficult time.
I manipulated objects and positioning with some items but documenting my environment as it exists was important for the project. Many items hold great personal value to me, are gifts, or heirlooms. Light reflection and texture are captured up close gave depth to the items. This depth mimics the personal effects the items have had on my life. Film would have required me to have a tripod which would have been difficult to capture some angles and in somme lighting conditions. I enjoyed how quickly I was able to change contrast levels. Darkroom is a meditative experience that I wish I could have during these times.
