Inspired by my friend from college Douglas Sonders, I’ve recently been digging through a bunch of old drives that I have not looked at since I graduated from RIT in 2003. In the process I have unearthed a lot of old work: some embarrassing stuff, some not so bad, and some just plain unusual. I’ll be bringing you some collections of this work over the coming weeks. The first of these series is from my senior year. One of my projects throughout that period found me somewhat obsessed with photographing various objects that I had frozen in ice. It was a growing experiment that did not start out so well due to problems with really cloudy ice. But with research and practice, I got pretty good at the process of making ice, which helped to improve the results of the images greatly. I froze everything, grooming tools, kitchen utensils, flowers, glass, figurines, fishing gear, and more. I’ll be on the lookout in case I come across any other images from this series to share. I would love for more artists to share the fruits of their early labors; do you know where your old work is?
