Attention to Detail

attentiontodetailbootlegginby Rachelle Clark

So often we fail to slow down long enough to take in the finer points of a moment. We glance around and only capture the overview. I find that sentiment and all that we find endearing is found within the details of a person or a landscape. This series is an attempt to pause long enough to extract the smaller points that are usually missed, and bring them out as the main focus.

The shadow box effect is an attempt to lend a 3-D quality to the images. I hope to allow you to feel as though you are staring out your window into the backyard and really see it for the first time.

Autumn Scenes

There was a painting of a river flowing through a Fall landscape, with autumn leaves floating in it that hung above our dining room table when I was a child. My brothers and I always tried to grab the leaves out of that painted river. To our imaginations it seemed possible.

I hope to evoke that same sense of possible tangibility for those that view these images.

Techna Floral

Techna Floral (6)By Rachelle Clark

Using a toning process that tones the black of the image, without effecting the highlights, I was able to take close ups of floral images and adjust the black and white prints to reveal a Technicolor side of their intent.  Framed in antique windows to give a country style garden feel to the works.

Body Landscapes

For one who gets lost in the aesthetics of a jaw line for hours.

This is a thirteen piece series, consisting of high contrast, single light source, close up nudes. The concept being to imitate the sun’s effect of texture in light and shadow on sand dunes and rolling hills with the human form to display the true beauty of human contours.

The centerpiece of this series is a collage comprised of roughly seventy photos arranged to create one human form engulfed in all possible settings.
