This series of photographs, titled Clarity, is a continuation of my ongoing exploration of human versus digitally rendered perception.  The process of creating these images involved using old photographs from my personal photographic archive to create new images.  An additive and subtractive process is employed; digitally painting, selecting, and removing elements of the original image.  By digitally stripping away information present in these old photographs, I allow fragments of images to appear, hinting at what used to be, while revealing a new perspective. This rebirth of the image grants it fluidity and a paint-like organicism that isn’t typically seen in traditional photography.  I believe in challenging the viewers to abandon their preconceived notions of photography and to recognize the growth this medium holds.
