Buff (work-in-progress)

 

This work in progress is the continuation of concepts brought forth in my previous series “Imprint” and “Shepherd.” However, this body of work is intended to deconstruct those ideas of ritualistic, primal, and tribal mark making much in the way that one would buff graffiti.

In the first two series I approached photographing each object as if it were an environmental portrait standing in as a surrogate from whoever made it. This series does not depict the mark or inform us of anything about whoever made it. This series depicts the response.
