Light Rendering Space
The photographic process begins with a consideration of light and subject. In these minimalist images of empty places, the quality of light becomes the subject. The film emulsion renders a delicate pattern, commonly known as grain, from the subtle texture of these interior spaces. This, along with the visual qualities of tonality, composition, and space are indicative of the photographic process as a form of representation. The camera, by its very nature, mediates between the subject and the print. The abstraction exaggerates this distinction. In contemporary culture saturated with images, the camera becomes a powerful tool in forming an understanding of reality.
