Experiments that succeed are not the most important ones, for they confirm what we already suspect to be true. It’s the ones that end up being half-right, or more often complete failures, that are the most valuable. Why? Because they make us go back and reconsider. They force us to move into new and unfamiliar territory. And sometimes amongst the rubble there are hints and clues as to where the path lies.
These photos were created using natural light- something I don’t usually employ. But I had an idea in my mind to explore low contrast reflections. The resulting photographs were not quite what I had envisioned, but they point me in a new direction.
