CRACKED, CHIPPED, and ROUGH, is an abstract look at a very mundane subject—old, cracked, chipped, and peeled paint on walls.
What is revealed in this abstract photography collection are the macro-details of old painted surfaces. In my eyes, the joy of this type of macro photography is looking at, and seeing, the fine details of cracks in old paint; wondering how the curled ends of paint have lost its adhesive qualities; and, creating the pictorial illusion of texture in the two dimensional image. This may sound weird, but when someone looks at my cracked paint images, I want the rough textures of the paint, and the wall, to reach out and scratch your eyes! Not in a violent sort of way, but I want you so say, “Wow, I can feel the roughness of this scene when I see these images.” The primary effect I wanted to show with these photographs is the illusion of three-dimensional space. CRACKED, CHIPPED, and ROUGH is a collection of 15 black & white, and color images, in 22 pages.
