Tent Camera: Tree Trunk in the Bowdoin Pines, 2022

Product Description

I made this image using a device I invented called a Tent/Camera. With this light- proof tent I can manage to project nearby scenes via a periscope onto the ground underneath inside the tent. My picture of the tree trunk projected on the pine needle earth makes for an interesting patina that is photographic but yet suggests a painterly surface. I like the way my picture has the feel of paintings made by French artists in the Barbizon School in the 19th Century. The photograph also has contemporary artistic qualities and it is in that blending of the old and the new that I find visual pleasure. In a sense it is an image of Bowdoin in 2022 with echoes of an earlier time.
