Anonymous Collaboration

Two more from last weekend. This art is a collaboration with someone I’ve never met.  That someone painted and distressed these metal surfaces and abandoned them to the elements so Nature could add some rust.  I arrived with my camera, rendered them into pixels, cropped and made subtle changes in Photoshop, and selected these two as the best of a bunch. Now here they are on the internet.

    Looks line fine art to me. Well composed and seen. How about bringing some of these to the next print night?

    Tim, These have echoes of Brooks Jensen’s project of photographing graffiti in the old bunkers…Wakarimasen: I Don’t Understand. Have you considered b&w versions as he did?

    Really enjoying your blog!

    Wonderful and very interesting! Yes, I think Rick is right…it’d be terrific to have you bring some to print night! But let us know when you do, don’t want to miss it!
