Fence and Horno, 1996. Lincoln, New
On a return trip to the historic town of Lincoln,
New Mexico, I noticed this very clean organization of shapes along
the roadway. This print is a fairly straight interpretation of
the subject. The entire scene was in full shade, without the presence
of distracting shadows. I think the roundish forms of the kiln
in the recessed area mysteriously counter the sharp, vibrant shapes
of the white fence, creating a sense of visual irony. The negative
was Kodak 4x5 Tri-X developed normally in Kodak HC-110 developer.
As a result of my book projects of 1989 through 1991, I have gained
a real appreciation for the historic areas of our American West
and find myself returning to these places time and time again
in an effort to "see" the hidden images that lie beneath
the obvious surface.
