Behind the Lens

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.                  -Carl Jung

The projects listed below, are part of an ongoing exploration of the connection
between my photographs and my paintings.

365 day projects

daily self portraits and (not so) random thoughts

30 years ago, my division III (senior thesis) exhibition was partially comprised of a series of books contining daily self portraits accompanied by a journal entry. 30 years later, on September 1, 2008, I started participating in a group project: 365 days. This blog is an offshoot of that project.

from the studio

9/1/09 - 8/31/10

Taking a photograqph in the studio, every day was how I decided to continue with a 365 day project without taking self portraits. I wanted a subject matter that I was intimately connected with, so if not "me" then my studio. For a while this blog was the front page of this site, but at a certain point I needed it to be more of a journal and what I was writing about did not seem well suited to being an introduction to my work.
