Intro Text

In this project I am questioning the subjective value of selecting and making a photograph of one scene as opposed to any other scene. What makes one angle right and another not? Sometimes the location lends itself to a special dualistic view and sometimes it doesn’t.

In this project I am questioning the subjective value of selecting and making a photograph of one scene as opposed to any other scene. What makes one angle right and another not? I attempt to find out by planting myself in a spot, photographing a scene I find interesting, and then pivoting 180 degrees to shoot the scene behind me. Sometimes the location lends itself to a special dualistic view and sometimes it doesn’t. I am intrigued by the complexity and chance dialog that can happen when looking both ways. If I think there is a conversation there that merits more attention I present the two photographs as a diptych.

In this project I am questioning the subjective value of selecting and making a photograph of one scene as opposed to any other scene. What makes one angle right and another not? What is the scene facing any given photograph? Why was it not worthy? Is there a relationship there?
