A selection of photographs from my series “VERTIGO” will be on exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography at Stoneham Theatre in Stoneham, MA from March 18- May 19.
This series of photographs explores my reaction to heights. The fear, fascination, and curiosity they engender in me. The perverse thoughts they inspire. Images of towers, billboards, and tall buildings have been cut apart and rearranged into collages that juxtapose the structures’ shapes, sizes, and purposes. In the final step color and texture have been added.
On a personal level, these photographs are an examination of my lifelong experience of vertigo. They explore the connection between my most disturbing thoughts and the structures that inspire those thoughts. On a more universal level, they are an attempt to celebrate life’s everyday sights and often unnoticed scenery – the quotidian world that contains life’s wonder and speaks to its mysterious uncertainty.
