This piece was photographed on the ocean in Wainscott, and is the end of the line for this series, (at least for now). I’ve been busy printing these images over the last two days, a project which has been consuming plenty of time, paper and ink. I’ve steered clear of using any number of high-res papers, preferring instead something with a matte finish–Epson’s Ultrasmooth Fine Art Paper.
To me, the abstract feeling of these photographs translates much more compellingly onto a matte surface. From a few feet away, some of the prints resemble charcoal drawings. Another point–the paper I’ve been using is very warm toned, a quality which tends to makes the darkness more seductive.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to respond to these pictures–your feedback has been much appreciated!
