What am I thinking – Feb 22, 2009

Filed under: Photography, Projects/Series — Doug Stockdale @ 5:22 pm

Okay, that lead in, what am I thinking, can be taken a number of ways, maybe it is a Twitter or Facebook moment, eh?

I find myself working on my Insomnia series, drawn back into a black & white photographic series that is vagually about a place, and more about a place of mind.

It seems that I keep fighting & resisting what I am being drawn back into. I frequently state that I am now an urban (color) landscape photographer.  And I do photograph the urban topology, most recently the industrial/urban landscape of China.  But even the China landscape series has undertones of my perception of the emotional state of their society, however a brief glimpse that it was.

Then I abandon all that I am doing to come quickly back to this dormant series when I gain an insight in perhaps the best way to complete the series.

Okay, so that is what I am thinking….

Best regards, Doug


  1. I think I understand what you are trying to get across. It’s perhaps never best to set constraints around what you think that you do or are, rather to let what ever it is take you where it will.

  2. Exactly. So I am probably not fighting this series as much as I let on, eh? I do enjoy urban landscapes photographs, and I still will photograph them as well, but these internal landscape series seem to capture my imagination more.
