Monday Muse - Single Images

Over the past year I've become very project oriented, however the Kraft Paper Diaries require random single images and I'm reminded to once again look for them. My initial interest was a couple of kitchen workers dressed in all whites that never materialized while I pretended to make this image in a downtown alley…looks a bit of old Europe.

Given the cold weather it's been a month since working on the street, so for practice I employed the stealth technique of conspicuously pointing the camera up to make an image [pretend or actual] then turn toward the subject while pretending to "chimp".

After two weeks of below freezing the thermometer moved favorable for some work on the street.

Monday Muse - The Kraft Paper Diaries

At eighteen pages maximum, the Kraft Paper Diaries are simple bindings of humble materials with the words and images presented en collage. While there is no time table for completion—some may record a passage of time with mid-stream stops to explore a discovered interest—or some may be of a single concept. As one tableau is resolved…another begins…though normal is to have several concurrent projects.

Kyle Folder

First effort in making a Hedi Kyle Folder from scrap Canson to contain six 8 1/2" square photo collages. While far from perfect…I learned what I needed to learn.

Eggleston approach…

zero daylight

I've mentioned several times that I shoot sparingly because I lack the patience to edit down a bunch of images. Then I read about William Eggleston's one shot approach…all for it! Also intrigued by 2.75:1 format.

Monday Muse - Continue

A one word years end summation of this page is…continue. The Kraft Paper Diaries, En Collage, and structured Photobooks have become my primary challenge…along with making incremental improvements to "all" my processes.
