Shrine: Bag of Potting Soil.
Shrine: Bag of Potting Soil, 2009. Not sure what medium or size I will print this as yet.
Rough scan of new 4x5 image, to be used in a shrine sculpture. I was originally only going to shoot black & white until I got used to my 4x5 again, then switch to color film, but now I'm really enjoying b & w. I think the black & white images memorialize the objects I'm photographing in a way that color images just can't. It puts the object visually in the past, while at the same time adding an extra level of distance between the object, the camera, and the viewer. I may still work with color for some images, but right now I think black & white makes alot of sense. Anyone disagree?
