This form-based series was created in response to the architectural monoliths we surround ourselves with and create traditions with them. Many great wonders of the past were built to worship the gods of a certain culture. Nowadays our gods are housed within the concrete walls that hold our most desired treasures. They stand alone beckoning us to come near, especially during the holiest of days.
Using the form-based method of capturing the landscape enables the subject to become another worldly object that can take the viewer into another dimension. I am using a sharpening with a frontal vantage point and tight economy of frame to assist in the flattening of space. By using a high aperture my depth of field is sharp across the whole image. By placing the images side by side in two, the viewer finds a conversation between the two images.
