Projects - Planning

It is becoming apparent to me that, as I shoot more of the new Doorways to the West Project, I find more to shoot, which leads to the next question , how big will this project get, what form will it ultimately take?

As I review and edit, the numbers change; usually down, and I have currently 30+ images suitable I feel for printing and exhibiting, this will grow as I scout other nearby areas for more imagery.

A Quotation

Chatting with a peer in Darwin who has just completed their Honours Year, made me dig up my own Masters project, which I completed in 2002. At the end of the project is a series of notes I added post production, here's one I'd like to share.

“A fine print is the culmination of a complex sequence which begins with the recognition of the visual event. To produce such a print, the photographer must make a negative that is properly exposed in relation to the pre-visualised image...This sense of fine, almost unseen, detail and clarity allows the viewer to experience subtle differences in reality. Each viewer brings to the photograph their own personal sensitivities and the “fine print” allows the viewer to more easily intuit the connections existing between the viewer, the photographer and the photograph”

Browsing my film archives of the last few days, looking for work for the upcoming group show I'm in, I am once again struck by the power of photography and memory. The search reminded me of several locations, that I'd not visited for some time, and some images I'd made that for whatever reason, I'd never gotten around to printing. Now with the ability to publish my work as a book, either electronically, or as hard copy, it maybe time to revisit this older work, some spanning more than 20 years, to give it fresh life and an audience.
