Artist’s Notebook: 06 June 2016
One of my major activities is exploring the city for reference material for future compositions. On these visits, I try and frame shots to see if something might click.
For example, visiting the former remains of the 1912 Westinghouse foundry on Longwood, I am was curious about the potential for urban decay industrial landscapes.
The abandon buildings have provided countless images for landscape photographers over the past twenty years.
I am also interested in finding subject matter for compositions that might be submitted to the MIP art shows. If I can find an appropriate urban theme derived from the site, I may submit that composition for the fall show.
