I had to look at a number of photographers artist’s statements, and then write my own to be included in the fifth assignment. I noticed that the artists generally chose to either talk about themselves or the particular work they were introducing. I decided to do just a little of both.
Anxiety, stress, depression. I never had an escape from myself until I bought my first camera. What began as an occasional hobby has become an integral part of my life- I explore the world through my camera, with which I have the most unusual experiences and adventures. My night-time long-exposure photography let’s me capture the night as clear as day and often gives a unique perspective on scenes seen many times before.
In this set, titled “Becher’s Belief” I’ve begun to think about how my personal voice can develop when considering the work of other practitioners. Using the New Topographic photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher as a template, I have put my stamp on the banality of some of our modern-day infrastructure.
