Be Excellent To Each Other
Be Excellent To Each Other is a current series based on my time living in Madison, Wisconsin. I document surroundings of my new city by photographing details that have become familiar to me on a regular basis. These subjects are guides for me; they are reference points, in my new environment, and with them I have established a sense of familiarity and comfort. The results of two layered images reveal a visual metaphor for the time I have spent here, covering and uncovering relevant details that play a role in the discovery of my new home. All images were created with a Mamiya RB67 ProS medium format film camera. This project was very process oriented in that the double exposures were deliberately planned by exposing a roll of ten images on film, then rewinding and reloading the film to expose another ten images on top of those. I plan on continuing this series throughout my time in Wisconsin.
