Recent infrared photographs. The bottom two are from before the recent snow storm. The reflected infrared from the snow on the trees and the bright white outhouse was so intense the sky appears black because of the fast shutter speed required to capture details in the small building.
This week on his Red Dot Blog, Jason Horejs of the Xanadu Gallery posted an item entitled “Collective Wisdon: Creating Titles for Your Artwork” addressed a question dear to my heart. Anyone who as followed my work knows that I title all my photographs. To my way of thinking artists who exhibit artworks as “Untitled” send a message that they are interested in process but not in ideas, in telling a story, or in explaining their motivation.
Horejs makes a good case that not titling work is a bad business practice, but I think titling work is as much a part of doing art as process.
