Most of my photographs are color abstracts. In these I attempt to create compositions out of common objects — walls, flowers, signs, etc. — concentrating on the colors and forms, looking inside the boundries of the object to see past the normal context. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with focus and depth of field as another method of abstracting the images. I work with a Pentax 67 medium format camera shooting transparencies scanned, as well as a Nikon D700 full frame digital camera, and printing in large format (36″x24″) on rag paper.
