To start the process I plan to describe the photos individually in my Blog and use that as the basis for the description in the catalogue and web page for that image. The show has a goal of 40 images so I plan to post two a day and finish the process in mid-August. This will also help in organizing the show and sequencing the images.
To start (in no particular order) are three images from Nova Scotia from 1997:
|Boulders #1, Long Cove, Nova Scotia, 1997|
|Boulders #2, Long Cove, Nova Scotia|
|Boulders and Lighthouse, Long Cove, Nova Scotia, 1997|
The striking scenery of the folded and jumbled rocks and boulders on a largely vegetation free shore produced great enthusiasm in me as the rock patterns and shapes morphed into mental associations and a variety of emotions. The viewers of theses images bring their own experience and background and will undoubtedly have their own unique experience.
The top two images were made with an old (ancient) Calumet monorail 4x5 view camera and grey scale film. The lighthouse image was made with a Mamiya Flex 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 twin lens reflex camera and color film, rendered in grey scale. All three images were printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight).
