These images are not new, but I think they represent “journey” quite well. I plan to do more images with cars in the future.
Today, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are lined up (well within 5 degrees of each other)- the first planetary trio since May 2011 and the last until October 2015. Read more here.
I’m going to take this opportunity to explain a past image.
This image is part of my series The Conception and Sensation of Time. I wanted to take a photo looking up from below to lend more clarity to what was happening in this image:
So, I popped the figures off of the set and held them, super glued together, in the air.
It’s not like this idea is massively creative, but I think it’s interesting to know what was going on in someone’s head when they take or design an image. I love looking at behind the scenes shots because there is so much story behind the creation of an image that you don’t necessarily get when looking at the final piece.
For the series I am just beginning, I will be taking a lot of behind-the-scenes images for one of my professors from UNF to use in his Fabricated Photography class this spring, but of course, I will also be sharing those behind-the-scene looks with you. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, check out these set-up shots by photographer JD Hancock.
I know you’ve seen images from this series before, but considering the series is called Change, I thought I would take this opportunity to discuss it further. I have lived in Jacksonville since my Freshman year of High school. That makes 8 years now. These past 8 years, more specifically these past 4 have been the most significant years of my life in terms of personal growth. My memories here and the experiences I’ve had have shaped me into who I am. This series, while never fully finished took figures, each representing me/ some aspect of myself (i.e. painters, photographers, readers/workers) and placed them in locations around Jacksonville that have been significant to me in some way (i.e. The Cummer Museum in which I volunteered for a few months and interned for nearly a year). I strove to fully explore Jacksonville’s effect on my life before I moved forward in my endeavors elsewhere.
I’ve been hard at work on my senior project. Here is a bit of a preview. However, this series is very much in it’s beginning stages, so there’s a lot more to come.
