During all of 2017 I spent most of my “photography” time in the studio with lights. I plan to continue this studio work through 2018 until I feel like the series is complete, however I had realized that I am spending hardly any time taking my camera out and making regular pictures… The other day I dropped some work off at a gallery in Scranton and decided to take my new camera and lens out for a stroll. Cities are great because of all the decay and strange mix of nature and cement. During my shoot I realized how I seem to always shoot with a formal composition, very straight and flat, like that of a Wes Anderson movie. I am going to take my camera out of the studio more often now.
