Full Circle

Saturday, September 24, 2011

I started to look for a face of an older person, one with wrinkles that would make for an interesting subject matter. Once I located an elderly man’s face, I then wanted to do something that was an opposite. I located an old vintage photo of a female nude model that seems to make a nice contrast to the senior male figure in a suit and a tie. Then I felt that landscapes would make for differing images to the human forms. I went with an uncluttered beach scene  next to the female image, since both subjects suggest life enabling. While I selected an old photo taken of a highly commercialized roadside with signs and power-lines cluttering the way. So the left side is about life giving and the right side is about life in decline. Yeah, I know, not real cheery but poignant.
