ABOUT SEQUENCES, DIPTYCHS, DOUBLETAKES
When using film, contact sheets can surprise you with astonishing images that were unplanned. Exciting
relationships emerge between frames. Some happen by accident, some by intent, some by night swallowing
the frame edge allowing time to flow, some by unexpected juxtaposition, but all happened within the camera
The images in this series have been collected from different projects over 35 years, as they occurred.
It is possible to escape the limitations of one moment, one frame, without resorting to manipulation in the
darkroom, or on the computer. Daring to flirt with accident, taking risks, looking at what the camera saw,
as opposed to one's own preconception, releases a new visual dynamic. Sometimes relationships between
frames simply leap off the contact sheet and demand attention!
