In The Wall, a section of the Berlin Wall was photographed in a small public park in NYC. The wall is a symbol of a divided and violent past but it is also art and was part of the urban landscape. My photograph of the wall has been added to the Namibian landscape where it blocks a giraffe’s centuries-old path. It is once again a concrete symbol of division as Namibians struggle with land redistribution policies after years of German colonization. (The wall is no longer in the NYC park.)
Idealized beach scenes printed on banners hanging on chain link fences hiding construction and beach destruction. (More from this series available.)
The use of photography for marketing and advertising purposes, such as selling a condo, is inherent as the age of mechanical reproduction thrives. Researchers know that an imagined object is as real, to our brains, as an object, which is seen. My photographs include the wrinkled plastic photographic banners, hints of the construction site behind translucent areas in the banner, and the “actual” beach scene where all this is taking place.
