about elsewhere

This section of photographs are images that did not fit into an on going or completed project. They are random photographs taken throughout my days that I like but have no other "official" home. They might come from a intended project that did not materialize or a drive to get ice cream with elaine.

I plan on updating it on a very regular basis.

about the work

My photographic process has always been about documenting people and place to create records of the ordinary - and, through that process, finding poetry within the mundane. Creating large-scale panoramic photographs allows me to show simultaneously details and relationships at multiple spacial and perceptual levels—for example, both the self-conscious way a young woman holds her hand by her side as she allows someone to photograph her, as well as her place in the sea of people around her engaged in a similar task. It allows me to show a sweeping view of the cityscape from a distance, while simultaneously revealing the fine details of the scales of a fish that a boy proudly displays for the camera.

The photographs are on average around 85 inches long (there is also a 44 inch long version). They are ultrachrome inkjet prints, printed on a Epson 9800. Generally I assemble 6 to 8 separate images in PhotoShop to create almost a 360 view. In PhotoShop I do no manipulation to the images other then adjustment of levels.
