“Becoming” —New Series Started…
This is the first image, (rough) from a new series I’m working on titled “Becoming”
It’s a portrait series featuring a mixture of strobe and continuous light to produce a superimposed blur of the individuals face overtop of the portrait.
I like the idea of progression, growth, advancement; becoming.
My 4th year photo thesis (Horizons) was a series of people photographed from behind, walking toward Horizon’s though bucolic landscapes. I made that work to deal with questions of progression; the journey. How we are always chasing our future, our horizons. Our horizon is something we never reach, as it constantly advances, bringing with it new moments, a new present every time we step.
This new series is based around those themes, and grows from there. I’m looking to build this work around the awareness of becoming. A more internal, personal understanding of how you advance yourself. Horizons to me, was about the act of progression itself, Becoming is about the awareness and understanding of that act.
cant wait to shoot the next one tomorrow.
