Behind the Lens

I seem to be acquiring cameras. The big SLR, the little one that travels in my purse. The large format film camera with square negatives. And now the phone camera that I sometimes forget about.

I love cropping away the larger world into the viewfinder to see what I can see. Cooked down to fewer ingredients than the whole wide panoramic world, a photograph conveys the real thing in a way that is surreal. And I like that.

I just finished two photo collages from photographs I took on Lake Champlain while crossing on the ferry and near Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks. They were just published by Wild Apple (but are too new to hit the website yet). Both blur the lines of reality quite a bit.
