Here are a few photographs from last week’s work. I was thinking about the Greek philosopher Diogenes when I created the starting point for the day’s work. My 8th grade algebra teacher introduced him to me by recounting one of his stunts. From time to time, Diogenes apparently carried a lit lamp during the day looking for an honest person. All images were created on set, no digital manipulation required.
First Looks are my initial reactions. It usually takes days or weeks before I’m comfortable deciding if something makes the cut. Editing, selecting which pieces make it and which ones don’t, is one of the most difficult parts of the process. The images you see here are either ones that might be finished or inspire ideas worth pursuing.
