A study in perception.
The Corporal Landscapes are a series in traditional photography, inspired by the barren hills that twist, roll, and writhe over the dry land of eastern Washington State. From afar, the wind-shorn hills mimic the gentle texture and fleshy curves of the human body, but the eye can never quite discern what part of the body creates the form. As a nod to these hills, the Corporal Landscapes capture the twists and rolls of the human body such that our association of them with specific body parts is loosened, and the texture and forms can be appreciated as figural landscapes bathed in light.
Photography the old way.
Shot on 35mm black and white film with a Canon EOS Elan 7E SLR camera, the film was hand-processed in a darkroom, then full-frame images were exposed and hand-adjusted using traditional photographic techniques.
Since the images are printed full-frame through a shaved down negative carrier, no cropping is possible: the images had to be composed through the viewfinder of the camera.
Printed on matte, 200lb fiber based paper– this set of images, when seen in person, has a texture and depth that is not found in today’s digital photography.
