Challenge for Pictures in a Series: Motif or Concept Ordinary things with a modified layer.

Asher Kelman

OPF Owner/Editor-in-Chief
I have an obsession photographing sidewalks, stains of the roadway, smashed china, debris and anything else that catches my eye.

I am looking for the marks of time, use and misuse, patina and decay.

It occurred to me that I could create series with a layer with windows to reveal the original ordinary ground I seem to need to record.

This seems to focus more attention on what is there, as opposed to revealing everything.

Excellent Asher.
Really love this.
Thanks for stopping by and the kind reaction. I thought of a woman with a dress walking along the beach and then as the light shines threw we get hints of thrvundetlying beautiful shape.

So I wondered if a sneak reveal might work with a mundane subject.

Haha, yep, sexy as sh!t.
I’m not even quite sure what I’m looking at but I know I like it. The mystery is part the appeal I’m sure. This composition reminds me of the stunning work of Ken Tanaka (where did he go?) and date I say it?!!.... Tom Dinning. Masters of the mundane.

This could be a 2d rendering of an installation sculpture.
Thanks Peter!

What a great idea! That opens up new possibilities.

I wonder why creativity seems to work in such small steps, requiring progress on a theme before a new realization can occur......... by looking from a totally new perspective!

Very nice work Asher.

A sneak reveal for the mundane things works fine.

But ' I thought of a woman with a dress walking along the beach and then as the light shines threw we get hints of thrvundetlying beautiful shape ' taxes my imagination. It is or it isn't; for me!!

Best.

Asher,
This is mind blowing and let me think about your work you showed me privately some years ago about Nazi's camps.
This is much more "constructed"…
Il lets wonder about chaos.
But lets the choice between disorder and order…
More than powerful.

Well done! I love the combination and the way it flows across the page- ok I am watching my back now. It has a great abstract feel to it. I super like this!
