Ben asked me yesterday about what kind of photos I am interested in taking. The first word that came to mind was domestic, which sounds incredibly banal when you attempt to explain it. What I meant was interior landscapes. Small things. Everyday life.
This is my test workshop and the above photo is one from the first test batch after putting the camera together yesterday. It’s exciting to have something to chase after, something where there is so much to learn.
I found this morning in my internet travels a photographer who makes the kind of work I am interested in viewing and thinking about.
From the Peabody Exxex site:
Over the last 20 years, renowned Boston artist Barbara Bosworth has made photographs of her family around her childhood home in Novelty, Ohio, and at other locations significant to her family. Be among the first to see these touching images that explore the joy of youth and the wistfulness of aging, memory and the passage of time. Also on view, delicate natural objects collected by Bosworth’s family show a continuity of interest in nature across generations.
Here is more of Bosworth at the Smithsonian.
Domestic food for thought.
