I've been working on this typology for a couple of years. I have three done and are working on number four as well as one of old satellite dishes. They are 40" x 40" float mounted and framed 46" x 46". The paper is Crane Museo Silver rag.

I love it.  Well conceived and executed.  How much post work was required to dial in the skies to get them so similar in value?

Actually not much at all. I only shot on grey days.

Thanks

Someone asked me what printer was used. These are printed on Epson's 11080.

It's kind of cool, actually. I dig the concept. Grouped like that, they almost look like some weird alien alphabet.

Neat.

In a few years, people might not know what those were.

They're making a comeback.  HD over the air is better than cable.

As a concept, possibly for some form of industrial promotion or display decoration, and at that size of print, I see a reason and even a function for the work. But, if this is being presened as "fine art" in the various senses that we have tried to define that idea in this site, then I fail to see it.

That doesnīt for a moment mean it isnīt art - just that I canīt grasp its point beyond the fact that we are presented with a lot of similar images in a neat package.

Rob,

That's what I might have said, if I hadn't recently seen a fine exhibit called "Landscape/Typology" by the German couple Bernd and Hilla Becher, currently at New York's Musum of Modern Art. The Bechers have apparently been doing "typologies" of this sort for many years, and although I don't remember ever seeing or hearing the word "typology" before, I was blown over by their show. And it made me rethink some of my own preconceived notions about "what is art."

One of the things photography can do well, in my view, is to encourage people to look at the world in new ways, to pay attention to details that they might easily overlook. A "typology" of this sort invites the viewer to compare and contrast similar objects that would otherwise be ignored as "ugly". Studying them can reveal beauty in unexpected places.

The Bechers' books give some inkling of the power of 'typologies', but, like other good photography, the books don't have the same effect as seeing the real prints on a gallery wall.

Regards,

-Eric
