THE IRITIS COLLECTION – NAWFAL JOHNSON

RUBBER-BANDS DROP on BURGUNDY SERIES of the IRITIS COLLECTION

TO ROUND OUT THE IRITIS COLLECTION IS “RUBBER-BANDS DROP on BURGUNDY,” Series.

Not the place.  Not the sauce.  The color, burgundy.

The rubber-bands were dropped on a felt cloth that was burgundy color.  I realize that the final pieces do not look like the rubber-bands were dropped on burgundy color of anything:  You will have to trust me on this.

To round out THE IRITIS COLLECTION, is this abstract expressionism photography series, which is the tenth and final series of THE IRITIS COLLECTION.

I still have the Iritis and I’m still on meds for this disease.  The black shreds of iris pigments are still floating around in my eyes so that my vision seems like I’m looking outside through a dirty windscreen.  As I mentioned in a previous blog post, this is probably just my new normal – the unique way of seeing the world and photographs with “stuff” floating around in the foreground.

So, here are the eight photos from the “RUBBER-BANDS DROP on BURGUNDY” Series.

The Socrates Series The Iritis Collection by Nawfal Johnson

THE IRITIS COLLECTION (Sept – Nov  2013)
SERIES Title: SOCRATES.
SERIES NUMBER: #2.
PHOTOGRAPHS IN SERIES: Four.

The IRITIS COLLECTION is a group of photographic series, designed during this difficult and painfully long period dealing with Chronic Iritis, and now, a second eye disease called PDS (Pigment Dispersion Syndrome).  The PDS in my right eye makes it almost impossible to see anything but blurry objects with that eye.  As far as I have researched, there is NO cure for PDS.

I have found that doing Photography now is more difficult because I have always been a ‘perfectionist’ when it comes to composing and editing my photographs.  Well, I have discovered even more clearly (no pun intended), that there is no such thing as “Perfection” – it is a figment of delusional thinking.  Nevertheless, what I can do, is to execute the design of my photographs to the best of my ability.  Maybe that means spending more time with my subjects.  Maybe that means, taking more breaks during a photographic session.  Or, maybe that means not being so hard on myself when editing my photographs:  I always want to produce the best results possible, and that is still the goal.  The main difference now is that I will depend more on my left eye (which was always my BAD Eye – GREAT!), and maybe the best I can do now will depend more on the technology within the camera – especially in terms of accurate focus.

Thanks for visiting my new post.

A Note about photo No.2:  You can obviously see why cats are the most notoriously difficult subjects to photograph: By Image No.2, Socrates was already tired and becoming difficult.  The Photographer is ALWAYS at the mercy of their kitty-subjects who rarely want to listen to you – Everything is on their terms…so be ready.
