I make photographs and sometimes put them away and don’t look at them for months, sometimes the distance helps me not be attached to something I might have had a lot of fun making, it gives me a clearer head when I look and see the second or third time around.
The other day I was looking in a desk in my studio space and found a handful of things I made over the summer. It was a long summer, longer than I had hoped for a variety of reasons but I’ll just keep it to that.
I made this along with a handful of other images on the island in the heat. Boats were sailing infront of me as I did my thing. I exposed the prints and gathered them and chatted with some young people sitting on a bench who were wondering what I was up to.
Months later, here it is…
The two boats raced to the next marker, they sailed into the wind and charged over the waves. I don’t know who won.
