Bloody towel. 8x10 paper negative.
As the great organization of my photographic archive (recently dubbed Project FUBAR) continues, I find that I’m constantly stumbling upon images that inadvertently foreshadow conceptual paths I’ve taken since then.
The following is a record of an experiment I conducted in the Rillito River back in May 2011 and promptly forgot about - until now.
I took this photograph almost two years ago. I’ve had a proof print hanging on the wall in my studio for nearly as long. There’s something deep inside that tells me this is a really important image in my development as an artist, but in all this time I have yet to determine why.
This is what this spot looks like now.
