Who’s Looking Out Looking In?
Kelly Clampitt - Cowboy Boots
A photograph can certainly tell a story. Or better yet capture a scene that allows the viewer to write his/her own story. Perhaps even ask questions of a philosophical bent regarding the transience of human endeavor as nature inevitably regains the upper hand. Perhaps that thought is a little over the top but the image above does indeed tell a story. Kelly says, “Fascinated by the textures of old homes in decay and curiosity at what gets left behind, I explored my Cousin’s abandoned house in a cow pasture in Oklahoma. Using an old press 4×5 film camera, I took several different exposures which were combined to better balance the indoor/outdoor light contrast. The cows blank expression looking in at me and the folly of humans…..contrasting with the importance of eating grass all day.”
