Walking Pictures #27

Screaming Eagle, Milwaukee 2009 © jwl

My friend Scott Johnson used to use a half-frame 35mm camera. His work with that camera had it's own language. The images were playful in the way that the halves of the images spoke to each other and also in how the entire image spoke to the viewer.

I made these images (or this image) on my walk last week and now that I have it in the box it reminds me of some of Scott's work. I have made quite a few images out of paired images, I think that interplay between the segments creates an acute action for the viewer.

Thanks for the inspiration Johnson.
