A Study in Graffiti, Stencil and Street Art [Jan. 5th, 2013|12:06 pm]
The Image Collector
Now hanging at my gallery in Cafe Passe, 9 large images, 14 medium size, and 6 small from Laos, Nicaragua, Peru, Jordan, Cuba, Mexico and The United States. I have tried to make them more than just documentary images of found art by recontextualizing them as compositions within their immediate surroundings. The show will hang through February. Here are a few samples.

El Paso

Mexico City

Lima, Peru

Iquitos Peru

The shadow on that first one gives it an interesting feel.

I like these, a lot, and the first especially. I struggle a lot with photographing street art and sculpture, mostly involving my own conflicting ideas of ownership and fair use, which are usually more conservative than local law's. Perhaps the biggest thing I learned as an artist from my Italy trip was the impact of showing them with more context, cultural and environmental factors, unusual lighting. Maybe I didn't have to go anywhere, just paid more attention to your work....

You give me too much credit. I only recently figured this out myself, and I am not always successful.
