Lately I have been drawn to images that have a specific colour or focus quality that end up making the photographs resemble paintings. This is clear when I am in the editing-down-my-photos-from-the-contact-sheet stage, but my likes aren't really matching my urges, which have been almost completely commercial lately..
as an example, this was the second least commercial photograph on that roll:
There is no point in even scanning the rest.
Swing, 2008 is probably the last image that feels like my own work left on the countless rolls of film I took this summer - which leaves me with a series of 3. I really want to go back and photograph in Texas again, since I don't have access to young subjects here in nyc, and besides, youth is completely different here. I am more interested in the less opulent, and more simple qualities that remind me of youth in the south.
On another note! I have been doing work for Marais USA lately and am excited as the images are turning out.. I am actually in the middle of an 8 hour scanning session at the moment, but thought that since I was at the scanner I might as well sneak in some photo's of my own!
But now I shall go back to the slow pace of hi res scanning.
