Forgotten Vision

Visual Arts | Photography


All photographs in this series are the result of an accidental find. While cleaning up an old barn I found an old, broken, dusty window, and decided to experiment and create a forgotten vision. What I wanted to explore with this series is what feeling the contemporary objects may give to the modern viewer through the old “lens.” With each photograph taken, I lost a little of the integrity of the seals on the glass, resulting in new cracks or breaks. In all cases, the light was natural, and depended on time of day and weather conditions.  All photos are digital.

Abandoned: I simply let the window lean upon tall grass and combined it with other found objects, here planting pots.

Broken Hope: this is one of the last photo I took; the window was blown by the wind, and shattered. I also used a tilt lens to create the very centered focused area.

"Good Night": I left the window outside. As I was reading nearby I noted the reflection of the setting sun, and shot many similar pictures.

"Through Your Eyes": This photo is the result of contact between a raspberry bush and the glass. I was especially interested by the clarity of the plant through the relatively opaque glass.

"To The Imagination": Lastly a more traditional image: old books. I also shot a number of photographs using different exposures, lighting, and angles.
