Grandiose

Nov 25, 2019 - Jan 31, 2020

Black and white photo close up of rockscape

Grandiose is the result of a two year long project. This body of work stems from my yearning for nature and my affinity for the landscape photography of Timothy O'Sullivan, Ansel Adams, Alex Strohl, and Michael Strickland. It investigates self-discovery and self-reflection through introspective studies of "small landscapes" photographed on large format black-and-white film.

For this series of images, I found natural formations that weren't apparent at first glance. Looking down and in rather than up and out. 

I photographed small rock structures, peaks, and facets reminiscent of vast mountain ranges, summits, and notches. They challenge the viewer by embracing the eye in a landscape created through forced perspective and patience and to invoke curiosity in one's self: the sharp, bright faces of the small rocks abutting dark, deep crevasses reflect the contours of our thinking and growth as humans.

This work rested on a precipice of change. It was a catalyst to a deeper understanding of my intuition and vision as an image-maker, bringing about new techniques and visual cues in my approach to photography.

Grandiose is the beginning of a larger body of work: I will continue to explore the ground around us and how the often unseen and overlooked can be immense, invoking a sense of grandeur if we take the time to study, reflect, and accept new perspectives.
