Impulsive vs Intentive; Contemporary vs Ancient; Fast vs Slow

In the 21st Century we are able to gather media, pictures and videos, without restraint. The images in “From One Minute…” are exceedingly modern because of their “shot from the hip” and unprecious, haphazard nature. Previous to digital image capture, each camera shutter closed at the expense of sacrificing the chance for a different composition. In today’s age, we can unabashedly gather as many images as we want. In this series, I’m gathering my compositions in the most up to date, impulsive and non-committal way. Then I’m “developing” these photographs through woodcut, the most ancient, slowest and most labor intensive process.

Still vs Motion; Blurry vs Crisp; Literal vs Abstract
