You know how film photographers get to play with different kinds of film under their brand? I think digital photographers should get the same privilege – especially if they shoot different types of cameras for different types of photos. As artists, I think we should be able to show off all the work we love, not just the stuff we sell.
I was digging through my archives for a project this morning and I just realized how MUCH I miss the old depth in my photos, depth that said goodbye during my foray into contre-jour and what friends sweetly dubbed The Kelly Effect.
These early images of mine haven’t seen the light of day for a long time, but they still make me happy, so I thought I’d share this little jaunt into my past. It’s actually a clue as to where I’m going from here, knowing what I know now.
I have been SICK lately. It’s some sinus thing or another mixed all up with some lung thing or another compounded by some barometric pressure thing or another that is tied into some adrenal thing or another. (SICK is the easiest way to describe it. Forgive me for taking the easy way out on the physical symptoms?)
It’s not just a body thing, though. It’s kind of a heart thing too. A restless heart thing, the kind I used to write about all the time, but can’t seem to express at all any more. Maybe these pictures will say more than my limited vocabulary just now?
