When one wishes to draw an object realistically, like an eye, one must forget they are looking at an “eye” and instead identify and isolate the shapes that make up that eye and attempt to duplicate those shapes on paper. If one draws an eye thinking they are drawing an eye, most often they will end up drawing what they think an eye looks like instead of the actual appearance of the specific eye before them. In this series I apply this technique to photography for a different way of looking. I look at the visual forms before me rather than the potential subjects and objects, and then I compose each image with regard to the visual forms alone. I attempt to photograph the landscape as it can look instead of how I think it should look. Made with Hasselblad cameras and Fujifilm Pro 160C, Fujifilm Pro 800Z and Kodak Portra 160VC film.
