Those that know my work know that I have long been fascinated with the textures of rocks. There's something about the seemingly infinite variety of patterns and shapes that I get kind of lost in.
On a weekend away in Rhose Island, Julie and I found ourselves wondering around on a beach absolutely covered in large rocks. Once I started taking photographs, I found it very hard to stop.
These are the types of pictures I take really instinctively, and I'm particularly interested in the way the shapes work against the rectangular camera frame. Textures like these, along with scanned textures in the studio, are often cut up and used in artworks like Insulin or Long.
I'll stop here and let the pictures do the talking for the rest of the post. Note that this was nothing fancy, technically speaking — these were all taken with the camera on my Samsung phone.
