Martin Wilson

Sorry it's been so long since I blogged... But here's a new one!

Martin Wilson creates his images in an entire 35mm film strip, here's a quote

"My pictures are painstakingly created frame by frame on 35mm film. I get the whole film developed, scan it, then piece the final image together on the computer, making a large contact sheet. It's only when the completed film strips are laid out side by side in the contact sheets that the final image appear."

And some images:

Ana Cuba

Today, I've got an artist that I really, really like. Ana Cuba. Her photographs really speak for themselves, I'm not going to say much except that her work inspires me to document my personal/romantic interactions when the time is appropriate. Her work has such a soft delicate touch to them, I just love it. I hope you enjoy as well.

From her Singles series:

From her Us Series:

Alan George

Another one from my archive,

This is Alan George. I think the reason I was initially drawn to him as an artist, is because he did two thirds of my "soft-life-plan" in that he lived in Nashville, and then moved to California. His work is really interesting first a couple from his Domesticated series, which is a study of plants domesticated for human use, which echo conditions in the larger context of the relationship between human and nature:

And secondly his work about Lower Alabama:

This series of images is a reexamination of a landscape that is both familiar and foreign to me. Having grown up in the south eastern part of the US, I am now just a yearly visitor. As the years have passed, this landscape seems more and more foreign and not identifiable as part of me as it once was. We all change over time, some more than others I imagine, but I don't think you can live life and not be affected, changed in someway over time. "We are the sum of our experiences", perhaps. Time has passed and experiences have accumulated, I am now a stranger in this landscape, I am changed in some fundamental way.
