For the second post in my series for Photographic Narratives, Im exploring an article by David Rosenberg for Slate titled, A Photographer's Version of the Great American Novel. The article uses a neutral voice with the work and presents the work supported by facts and a bit of biographical tidbits.
The work, Taxonomy of a Landscape by Victoria Sambunaris has become one of favorites from the way she holds the camera and creates shots in order to convey her feeling and tone with imagery. The work is vivid and strong and help creates a visual language to showcase the different aspects of the American landscape. The article supplements that but you don't get a real sense of the feeling the writer has for the work other than what seems to sound like respect and a tad bit of admiration.
I post all the articles on this blog myself. I will post updates on artwork, new showcases of my work, magazines where I'm showcased and more. Be sure to check back often for new updates. Like my Facebook Page or follow me on Twitter to be kept up to date about new posts.
