This Rocks

November 5th, 2008

I’m resisting doing another political post. I’ll just say that now that the promising, posturing and lying is over for a while it’s time to see if any of the promises will be kept. History tells us that it’s not likely. But I have hope, while remaining a skeptic.


D20 2285 This Rocks
That’s Phoenix Kelley posing while freezing her pretty ass off down in the Hocking Hills a couple weeks ago. I shot this before I rediscovered Anne Brigman and started researching her work. Now I find this photo looks so much like some of her work that it’s a bit strange. I think I’m doing some different things from what Anne did with her work…but I have to wonder what her work would look like if she were alive and working today. I’m certainly not into the heavy manipulation and deliberate fuzziness that was a big part of pictorialism. And I’m very interested in color and the effect of light on the color of our surroundings. But still…my interest in the relationship of the female figure to the forms we find beautiful in nature seems to be very much what Anne was working with.
