Working the Angles
Working the Angles
Digital Photographs, 2018
I started attaching the description “working the angles” to some of the digital photographs I posted on Instagram because their compositions focus on strong geometric elements. I also like the cheeky allusion to a con artist who “works the angles” of a complicated situation, using questionable methods to gain the upper hand. 

Compared to my other digital photographs, these emphasize form over subject. I targeted lines, shapes, and patterns I could use to make interesting two-dimensional compositions. Using a monochromatic palette helped me keep the focus on formal elements — the meanings of the objects or places in these pictures is secondary.
