This one has me thinking about a project on figured wood:
I have a burgeoning array of photographs of knots and other woody detalia, and have been wondering how to group, narrate, present and otherwise curate the collection. The happy result of the above in color suggests that the unconventional aspect ratio might work to advantage, and that it’s worth reprocessing some of the existing images (which I’ve tended to present in monochrome) to bring out details of figure and grain.
I’ve generally sought faces, as in the Percé P.Q. boardwalk denizens and Gaspereau River DAR Bridge project, but there are other larger forms that want more thoughtful presentation too. The sprawling wood weblet needs another bout of organizing and nudging in the direction of a Blurb book.
Here’s the beginning of lumber portraits.
