Abandoned Building, Utah. Black and white photograph

Abandoned Building, 1978. New Harmony, Utah

Traveling through the small farming community of New Harmony, Utah, I noticed this very symmetrical old building. As the grass was blowing severely in the wind, I saw this as an opportunity to express the flowing motion of the grass against the stationary fence and building facade. Since a long exposure was necessary in order to maximize the motion of the blowing grass, I used a deep blue gelatin filter which allowed me to lengthen the exposure to several seconds. The blue filter also helped brighten the grass values as there was a high amount of blue inherent in the grass. I have printed this image using different techniques throughout the years. My latest prints employ the use of a highlight mask (to help brighten the door) followed by a SCIM (to enhance the black windows and the contrast within the fence posts). I find that my recent prints effectively reveal the face-like structure of the building set amidst a sea of blowing grass.
