I'm still not finished with my Grand Canyon: AfterImage series, but I've recently been teaching myself PhotoShop with images from older installations, so I thought I'd post those. Ever since I began making petrographs and photo'ing them, in 2006, I've imagined presenting the finished work from the series in sequenes of images. Petrographs are all about flux and time and change, and the sequence, rather than one iconic image, captures that best.
So here are some finished compositions from installations I completed between 2006-2010: Mill River, Sandwich Beach, Storytellers Cairn, Fleeting Fossils, Tides: New Brunswick, the Menna Series, the Mary Series, Faces in Nature, and Ghosts of Overbrook. These are just a handful of finished compositions that I picked at random.
All of these images represent "artisiinal" (ha! I love that word--here it means, "crafted lovingly by hand in the darkroom") photographs that I scanned to digital files, except for the color Mary Series shots, which are digital originals.
