Abstract (Summary)

My practice is almost ritualistic. I regularly return to specific locations to take photographs. The public places that I return to are unobstructed by security guards, the police, etcetera, and usually are close to where I live. I am really attracted to locations that provide me with a lot of dynamic elements, such as lines, geometric shapes, color, and textures. I begin by using a four by five view camera to take a photograph. Then I re-photograph the exact same location with a point and shoot digital camera, or vice-versa. When I use the digital camera, I shoot six to twelve photographs that are then synthesized into a single image using computer software.
