The Cost of Forgetting (part 2)

Time for a few more images from my current graduate work! If you missed the last post, I would suggest reading it first, so that this post will make a bit more sense. This time around I am sharing the multiple exposures from the white objects. I still have the glass ones to share, and then hopefully by that point I will have a new color ready to photograph and post.

The Cost of Forgetting (working title)

I have recently been sharing with you all simple images of still life scenes. In some of those posts I vaguely mentioned that they were essentially just components of my current graduate work, but that I wasn’t quite ready to share those images yet. Well, after sitting on them for a few weeks, and talking to a few professors about the images, I am ready to share. I will be sharing them over the next week (or longer), with the first set being of the blue objects, so be sure to check back for more.

The title of this post is my working title for the series. It is something that popped into my head while writing this post, so it is likely to change, but for now that is how I will refer to these images. The series is more or less a visualization of the difficulty of remembering. Trying to recall things that perhaps aren’t very important or monumental can cause confusion in most of us on the best days, but for those that have something that impacts their memory (things like Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, PTSD, and numerous other disorders, diseases, etc.) it can be extremely difficult. I have been researching memory, and various things that can affect it, but of course still have a lot to learn (as do researchers). My images have sort of progressed along with my research; as I learn about memory and things that make us forget my images shift and change.

These images were all in-camera multiple exposures. They range anywhere from 3 to 9 exposures (I can’t recall the number per each image), and then minimal editing was done to the final images. I have also been thinking about presentation ideas for these (since my thesis show is quickly approaching), and have some exciting things planned (to try at least).

So, enough rambling, I hope you enjoy the first set!

White Still Life

Another round of still life images for you all. These were shot the same day as the blue still life, as well as the second round of glass still life images. I have been loving the simplicity of these still lifes; they are quiet and rather understated, two things that I really appreciate these days.

Blue Still Life

If you have been following along lately, you have seen that I am photographing monotone still lifes. Besides the glass and white objects, I also shot some blue objects. I don’t have as many objects painted blue at this point as I would like, so hopefully after building up some selection I will re-shoot and have more images to share.

Fishing in Kansas

I could have sworn I already shared some of these images (since they are from this spring), but apparently they got lost in the shuffle.

Scott and I both really enjoy fishing, and this spring we went quite often. Unfortunately because of the heat, both of us fighting some long-lasting illnesses at the beginning of the summer, and our generally busy schedules we haven’t gone much lately. I also was pretty bad about actually shooting images with my camera (I got lazy and just used my phone most of the time) while we were out, despite bringing it along. But, here are the images that I did capture.
