Some Islands

This series of large color photographs are partially literal in nature because they document actual structures that exist and have an affinity to the New Topographics because of a shared interest in the built environment. However, they are also somewhat invented in that they are reductions of what was originally photographed in the full frame. This results in a lone parking lot island in the midst of an empty white field. By doing this I hope to endow these pictures with an ambivalent subjectivity which represents a conflicted relationship to these environments; a relationship imbued with humor and pathos.
