So I just spent a week in Florida which was lovely and relaxing but best of all it inspired me to start a new series. Much of my previous work deals with themes like isolation and separation so it seemed natural to continue on this theme but bring it to a more personal level by using myself as the main "character." I can't wait to push this further and do scenes in shepherdstown or DTF. It started with this sequence:
I did this the first night of my trip. I love all my grandmas old furniture and lamps and things. I envisioned this shot in my head days before coming to Florida. I always stay in this room. That's how I usually work, actually, I see the photograph in my head when I am trying to go to sleep and then I try to reproduce what I saw. And this is what I ended up with. Then after this series as I was going to sleep I started thinking of beach scenes and ended up with these:
and this one:
and then there is this set that I haven't made my mind up about just yet..i dont know if i like it enough to include it
I think it just has the wrong feel for the series perhaps...what do you all think?
