When aspiring to produce a photo above the ordinary, most are not particularly distinguished on the level of technical skill or approach as that of a professional. In retrospect we wish we had been more careful, better composition, better lighting, etc. But ultimately this isn’t the criteria for how we decide if the photo is a success or not. What is important in the photograph is the presence of loved one at a significant event or a documentation of the moment that prompted the image. Odd framing, motion blur, uneven flash, bad print from store, red eye, camera shake, etc. In intimate Photography, these technical shortcomings of domestic non-art photographs are part of the language with which these private experiences are communicated. Usually these images serve to remember symbolic points in family life. Moments we want to hold onto emotionally and visually. In this ongoing series of Intimate Places, Intimate Spaces, abstraction helps paint a picture of these feelings, moments, and areas in life.
