Underfoot Abstracts Show
The Salem Museum, Salem, Virginia
The Salem Museum will show a selection of prints from my Underfoot Abstracts series February 7 - March 14, 2015. This series examines how lines, shapes and colors found on pavement and concrete can become interesting compositions, with the appropriate framing and treatment.
I'm presenting these matte-finish photographs mounted only, so that no glass or reflections come between the viewer and the print. Some are hung on walls, and some collected as a portfolio box. I'll also be showing my new book of the same name.
Please come to the reception on February 7, from 1-3PM.
The Salem Museum is at 801 East Main Street, Salem, Virginia. They are open Tuesday-Friday, 10-4 and Saturday 10-3.
New Photo Book
Underfoot Abstracts is my latest idea-driven series in book form. In 20 pages I conduct an experiment in composition: What happens when you photograph accidental or utilitarian marks that were never meant to be enjoyed for their visual interest?
Photographers make decisions about framing, selection and frame shape with every subject, but how does it work when the subject itself is non-representational?
