Sign of the Cross - Part Six

Wyoming Holy Bible

This cross is not located in the state of Wyoming, but rather on a city street in St. Louis that bears the same name.

Painted red bricks, painted white stones, a manicured green lawn, windows and doors sealed shut, a cross stabbing the Bible; the imagery was rich enough for a compelling photo.

Sign of the Cross - Part Five

Simplify. What's the minimum amount of elements I need to include in a photograph, to create the drama and image that I want?

SERIES - Overhead Projections, Part One

Click image for larger view

Working on a series of photos is an ongoing process. Maintaining your vision and remaining true to the original concept is definitely a discipline. The eight premier photos of the new series Overhead Projections were created over the course of a nine month period. Seventeen other locations were shot but did not make the final cut, not because they weren't good photos, but because these were simply the best. Constantly editing your work is a vital process for an artist. What occurred as an intense emotional experience one day, may not stand the test of time or fall into the guidelines of a body of work.

Overhead Projections is available through Bruno David Gallery .
