A study of place.
By standing in one spot and framing multiple exposures of the place where I am, at that moment, I seek to capture a more holistic view of that place, at that time.
The layering happens in the camera, in the moment, and therefore influenced by the energy of the place. The results are not particularly controllable so that leaves room for other subtle influences to have their effect on the image.
The layering of textures and detail interest me in the way they add to the richness of the image. It really needs to be seen printed large to fully appreciate this level of information. While I am sure a graphically stronger image could be achieved by layering separate images in photoshop, in a controlled manner, I am really looking for something else… that magic insightful component.
I am just experimenting with this technique at the moment but think it has great potential.
