I look to the landscape to find meaning and succor to the thoughts and feelings in my mind.
"I photograph things for what they are and for what else they are.” – Minor White
I've used the ten project spaces to share 100 images that belong together in a body of work called Mindscapes.
Most of the images were made in 2016, and I continue my use of tree imagery as a metaphor to survey an emotional landscape.
I've made use of names, descriptions, and alternate and title text spaces within this BakerArtist website to provide verbal cues as a point of departure for the interpretation of the images.
There are very few prints made of these images. In fact, most have never been printed. This is a conscious decision on my part to bring my creative practice into the 21st century as a greener, less consumptive, art expression. At this point in time, it seems unlikely that I will ever return to inks and paper or even traditional photographic processes.
Right now, this feels right.
