I started being interested in shadow patterns, when I started taking iPhone photos. I’d done some serious landscape work, but that was a long time ago. But with the pandemic, the isolation and the walking that I’ve been doing, it clarified into something much more emotionally involving.
I’ve started a new series of images that were definitely inspired by sheltering in place and the whole pandemic isolation world.
They are all shadows on paths, some of them sidewalks some of them something more complex.
These are the first group with which I am aesthetically and meaningfully satisfied. Happy or pleased doesn’t apply. But I am fascinated by the way they reflect an aspect of how things are and how they interact together.
I’ll be fascinated to learn, over time, where these paths lead me.
