Rear View Mirror • 13 Typologies
“My commercial photography work and personal travels take me down many highways, streets and sidewalks, usually moving through the world much too quickly. An arrangement of grain elevators, the light of a building or oddity, they are ahead of me, and almost immediately they are behind me. I have to decide: do I turn around or keep moving forward? This seems to me like an apt metaphor for contemporary life, the future hurtling towards us and then, in the blink of an eye, it’s already behind us, in the past……it’s all in our rear view mirror.
Rear View Mirror •13 Typologies; is my way of classifying 325 images, each organized by a unifying color. The dissimilar oddities, landscapes, signs, buildings, and places create a singular abstract image; a color field. Each grid of 25 images is set inside a 44” x 44” square paired with a single image from the grid printed at 44” x 44”. Each viewer lands on a different image. I find the different interpretations of each typology very interesting.
Like a friend said: “you are like a prairie dog popping up out of the ground, always scanning, looking and thinking did I just see something to stop for and explore”.
