“I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.”
- Wallace Stevens, from “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”
Inspired by the Wallace Stevens poem, Thirteen Ways is a collection of photographs of my daughter, Eden, since she was born in 2006. The project is at once both a reflection of a father’s fascination with his child and a representation of the multiplicity of personalities that a young woman coming of age can choose to embody.
In addition to inkjet prints, the project includes non-traditional photographic prints, including intaglio prints and cyanotypes. Images were taken with a 4x5” view camera, medium format film cameras and various digital cameras.
