Looking at my work from recent years, it is apparent the masters of Renaissance painting have had a significant influence on my photography. The lighting, color palette, and overall mood reflected in the imagery all reference the past. As I move forward, the imagery mirrors other times.
A recent session with Astrid Kallsen of Atlanta produced the above images and many more, natural light in the studio of the SE Center for Photography.
Tatum was back for another session in Paths That Cross, for Beneath the Southern Cross, above, and Lo and Behold, below. A few more shots are planned with Tatum and Brittani returns shortly for her next chapter in the story before our preview show in May, to coincide with Artisphere.
A couple of weeks ago I invited local model Hannah to come by and create some images for Paths that Cross. This is only a sampling of what we accomplished that first day, still untitled. She has since been back for another shoot and so far it looks promising, too.
Erica Jay recently ventured south to help me add some more images to Paths That Cross. Being at the mercy of Delta Airlines, what should have been a few days of leisurely shooting turned into one marathon day, but what a day!
Working with Erica, I always leave with much more than hoped, we filled in some blank spots in the project and took it to some new directions. And Erica is pure joy to work with, though you can’t really call it work.
Erica Jay came to Greenville last week to help me out with another chapter in the ongoing Paths that Cross project. A few hours into shooting, the session morphed into an unconscious homage to Joyce Tenneson, whom we’re hosting this week at the SE Center for Photography.
Recent additions to Paths That Cross. Waiting Undergound, above, and Because the Night, below. Both images came from the same session, same model, and several more images have probably made the cut , too.
Have been inspired to start a new project to follow Another Time. I have recently been back in the studiowith several new (to me) models from Greenville and Athens, GA, and excited with what’s happening.
Paths That Cross will play several of my favorite themes but a new palette, collaborators, and treatment. Stay tuned for more.
