As I posted yesterday,  I was nominated by Jeff Alu to participate in a Black & White Photographic challenge (aka BWC)  that has gone viral on Facebook. This is my day 2 photograph.

I photographed this composition in 2007 at a time that I felt that I was in a state of flux. Since 1973 I had been investigating the natural landscape in Black & White. In retrospect I had been working with a Modern photographic perspective using as my role models the photographers Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock and to a lesser extent, Minor White. At this time I was now becoming more aware of the concepts of contemporary landscape photography and my interests were now to investigate the natural landscape with regard to metaphoric narratives. This photography was made during that creative transition.

Subsequently this image was juried into the Irvine Fine Arts contemporary photography exhibition and selected by the Orange County Museum of Contemporary Art for their Fall auction. A nice validation that I was indeed heading in a new direction.

The B&W photographer that I nominated for day 2 is Hiroshi Watanabe.

Cheers!
