"(h)yo͞omən" -- now showing at Duckie Brown Studios --
321 W 13th st. new york, ny 10014
"(h)yo͞omən" Is a brief glance at raw human form and shape, and how they vary within the male sex specifically (in this case male being defined by a person bearing an X and Y chromosome pair). i normally like focusing on color and storylines, but with this series I wanted to concentrate more on shadows and lines. I don't shoot in black and white that much, but having the two biggest pieces being in black and white felt more powerful to me...it makes me focus on the subject more. I got my degree in physical therapy, which i feel taught me how to be a better photographer in terms of raw human shape: this series felt like the first time I truly honed in on that. the center piece of the series is the image on the far left, entitled "Pectus excavatum." my intent is for the eye to start at the chest area of the image, follow up the curved body to the complete opposite right image, entitled "dorsal." From there, the eyes/stare of the far right image lead you to the two center pieces, entitled "the four quadrants" (top) and "ventral" (bottom), continuing through the center peices and back to the far left image, creating this constant circle motion within the works. all work is for sale (minus "Ventral" which sold) and the series will be showing for the next month at duckie brown studios in new york.
