Shortnin’ Bread

black and white image looking upwards at overlapping tree branches, all spun in a circle because of the lens, so seen in blurs and dots of spinning round light.

Death Room, Fort Scott, 1949


|
an open window casts blue sunlight upon a white bed, behind it the wooden paneling is split in two colors by the light. a lamp with a green shade hangs over the middle of the bed. on top of the bedframe is a small window that reflects the mirror with the white curtains and the turquoise blue shadow-lit light spilling in.

Magdalen


|
upward shot of the top of a large cathedral with two towers flanking the center structure, both with a turret at the very top (a steeple). the image is overlaid with light leaks of purple and red, and while the cathedral is lit by the sun, the shadows are green. it looks like the film was ruined, overexposed, or opened up, so the image is saturated with watercolor-ish colors.

Ash Wednesday, Unshowered


|

For the Virgin of Sorrows


|
it is dusk: we see water, deep maroon with black shadows crested on the underside of shelled waves,. a boat lit up with gold lights and steaming smoke into the mauve-dusky sky casts bands of gold and glittering lights on the path of the water, leaves a dark shadow behind it. the shore is a black band of shadows.

image of a well-lit forest of tall pine trees with no off-shoot branches in the background. In the center of the image is a dark pine with two hands clutching it - you see that man stands behind the pine and grips the tree like he's trying to hold on.
