Untitled: Light & Abstraction
Most of these were taken in the artist's backyard in Ormond Beach, Florida.
I undertook 'Untitled: Light & Abstraction' as a way of pushing abstraction to the max. I wanted to explore the possibility of finding an abstract image within a negative. As I shot the film, I imagined the resulting image, knowing the composing would be done entirely in the darkroom. I focused in on smaller areas on the film, and enlarged them to create the images. The darkroom and printing was always of great importance to my creative process, but here I allowed myself the freedom to let go of representation. The final print in the portfolio is the culmination of this exploration of design and abstraction in black and white.
