I love this triptych of images. For me they inspire some very complex feelings. The original photographs of deadwood and rocks in water were just “throwaways” until I decided to go very dark and just leave some of the highlights viewable. Then they started to take shape and almost feel like living entities.
I wanted to post some music for these three images but nothing came to mind. After spending 2 hours looking for something I gave up. So to all my wonderful viewers; do these images make you think of any particular piece of music? If so – feel free to post it in the comments. Thanks.
The continuing exploration of over exposure. This adventure began in my previous series “LUMINOUS IMPRESSIONS” [which can be seen here https://www.behance.net/gallery/24471909/Luminous-Impressions ] In some ways I think over exposure is a perfect metaphor for the internet era. When a photograph is over exposed it leads to “white out” situations where details become fuzzy and unrecognizeable. I wonder if that’s what will happen to us on the internet. Will too much exposure lead to a sort of personal and cultural blindness? And, is this a bad thing?
On the other hand – because of over exposure where things are not easily identified we are left to explore other realms of the over exposed image. It can give us new feelings and be an almost spiritual exploration into the non-pictorial and non-representational image. In other words, because we cannot readily identify something we are free to redefine it on our own mental, spiritual and emotional terms. Ten people can look at a photo of a kitten and all agree that it is a kitten they are viewing but when the image is over exposed each individual can come up with their own interpretation of what they are looking at.
