Lines of Sight began as a study of lines created by the intersection of walls and the flat plains created by the light giving tone to difference surfaces. Going further I found I wanted to include more of a space. So I emptied my apartment rooms of anything recognizable concentrating on the subject of light.
This project was a good test for me slow down and study something basic to the photographic medium. It also made me look closely at the camera's framing of information. The placement of lines, shapes and tones became important to create a composition. As my work had always been mistaken for paintings I began to study the works of Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko. What became interesting to me is that my images needed to remain as photographs. Once the viewer became aware of the medium their understandable question was "what is it a photography of." This is important as we assume the photograph is a representation of the real world or object. It is a desire to recognize the subject within a photograph. Ultimately I didn't care if one read the image as an empty room. I wanted the subject to be the record of light.
