Relics

I haven’t posted here on my blog in quite a long time. I finally was able to get some of my recent images scanned in though, so I have something to share!

As I mentioned, these are scans of some of my pieces. They consist of two photographs of the same object from different angles, which I wove together to break down the image some. For those of you who have been following me for a while you may remember that I was doing the same thing with houses before, and dealing with the idea of decaying memory. I have started to use objects as a way to make a more personal, intimate reference to failing memories and the attempt to hold on to them. You may recognize the images used here, because all of these except one (the moose) are actually pulled from my 366, as I find the act of pulling those memories back up quite interesting.

The white, sterile background was an experiment of sorts, and I still plan on playing around with it some.

Shattered

I had the itch for a self-portrait for quite a few weeks, and finally had a chance yesterday to do one that I had sketched out a while ago.

For the most part it turned out how I had wanted it to. I do wish that there was more glass on my face, but it just kept sliding off. I plan on doing a sequel of sorts, and have figured out a way that should get the glass to stick, so hopefully I can get to that in the near future.

I am really drawn to the one with the eyes closed, but have heard from many that the prefer the opposite. So I am curious to hear, which one do you here on my blog prefer? I would love to hear some feedback!

108/365 – Train Station

In hopes of finding some sort of grand inspiration for my project for the semester I went out driving this morning. I ended up in Paris, Kentucky for a little bit, and found this abandoned train station. At least that is what I assumed it was.

I didn’t really figure out anything in terms of a concept for my project, but I got some good, non-conceptual pictures which is better than nothing I suppose.

91/365 – Shattered

I started shooting for this semester’s project tonight, which brought me to my friend’s storage unit. Her and her husband were reorganizing things and found some broken frames so I grabbed a few pictures after getting my project shots out of the way.

My project (as of now) is focusing on things that hold us back. Things like money, time, possessions, et cetera. So, I would love to hear, what holds you back?

39/365 – Refuse

I have had this tv sitting in my office for quite some time now, and originally just planned on bringing it to the electronics dump. But a few months ago I got an image in my head that involved the tv for a self-portrait. I finally had a chance tonight to use it, thanks to my friend Kellin. We went driving to the field I had planned on using, but they had recently cut it back. On the same road was this field with the fallen tree, and I instantly got some other ideas. Although it isn’t at all what I had originally imagined, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I do plan on still trying my original idea at some point though, so expect to see the tv again in the future.

38/365 – Analogue Sunrise

I got some stickers in the mail from the amazing Analogue Sunrise! Expect to see more of these around Lexington. Analogue Sunrise is a website dedicated to film photography, and features some awesome work. Be sure to check it out.

22/365 – Fluff

I don’t know why I titled this fluff. It was the first thing that popped into my head, and nothing else would, so I guess that is what I will go with.

I had done this idea with my roommate for my last 365, but ended up going with something else (the exploding egg for those of you who have followed me for a while) that we did the same night. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out as cool this time, I think because of the different glass container. Also, I managed to cut myself in two different spots, and was dripping blood absolutely everywhere. I will say though, that blood looks pretty awesome when it lands on a pile of flour. It immediately beads up and rolls around for a second, pretty cool in my opinion (although, I am a bit of a nerd).

And just for fun, here is my finger immediately after it was cut.
