These photographs show the constantly changing image from the same position as time passes. Each moment is unique and never the same. Three-dimensional buildings transform into two-dimensional graphic images as sharp vertical lines become ambiguous by the sun creating it’s own lines with shadows, angles, and colors which create another kind of visual depth of it’s own. As I spend time observing and capturing the sun’s creations, I can’t help wonder how many of us are not aware of nature’s art show in the hustle and bustle of urban city life.
The ability of the sun, the passage of time and the changing of the seasons to transform a lifeless building into a vibrant graphic image is the concept I first worked on 28 years ago using traditional film. I knew what I wanted to create but due to the limitations of the technology I was unable to reach the results I desired which were sharp vertical lines that create and enhance ambiguous space. After several year’s had passed I reunited with this idea and images using digital technology that allowed me to create the sharp vertical lines and space that I desired. This excited me as much today as it did when I first conceived the idea.
