The Big Picture
January & February, 2005
Images in the “Big Picture” series are panoramic since they present a wide view and provide an all-encompassing survey of a street or place. But, the images do not pretend to have been taken in one photograph. The images in this series are composed of twelve or more digital photos that have been collaged together to create spatial harmonies and disharmonies, in some passages the images seem to be continuous and in other passages images overlap and show only half of a person or car or 3 sides of a building. The images refer to cubist notions of representing all aspects of a three-dimensional object on a flat surface. The images in this series explore large areas like streets, giving the viewer an opportunity to visually walk down a street or explore a place. Though all of the shots in a “Big Picture” are taken within minutes of one another, time differences are reflected in the position of people and subtle changes in the light and shadow in the different shots that comprise a “Big Picture.”
