These four photographs are part of a series for a soon to be published photobook — This time, this time — that grew out of my desire to photograph outside of my social documentary work. This, time will tell. As a matter of routine, when one subject matter (momentarily) vanishes from my awareness, another emerges to take its place. Indeed, for over two years I have been photographing around my neighborhood in South Minneapolis on mostly sunny days, refusing to linger on any one shape or form longer than what my brief walks allowed.
Customarily, the accumulation of images over time is what propels a photo project to a logical conclusion before it consumes the creator. The images, like the accompanying text, are meant to evoke a stream of consciousness akin to a non-linear film script. And like a movie, once all of the pieces are assembled and edited, the book will mean more than the sum of its parts.
Shown at 360 Gallery / Minneapolis, Mn / July 16th, 2016 – August 16th, 2016.
