Gravity is a project that took shape over a course of two years. I shot these images at a handful of different quores on the East and West coast. Over time I found my focus on objects bigger than life or monololithic. by manipulating the reality as much as I can through an authentic photographic process called Sabattier effect. I found a place I was currious to explore. A process that feels so heavy and unruly. It allowed me to examine the fine details and get lost in the negative spaces. My curriosity of seeing the negative side and finding a balance between those midtones was all part of my own examination. Some of these photos were taken two years prior until I focused on the prints. In many ways the time spent on the process was as important as the time spent going to all the locations. I understood I wanted to feel intentional I wanted to be extreme. I wanted the weight of these objects to overwhelm you like the weight of the silver and midtones do the same.
