Templates for New Pictures 2009

The style of four of the pictures I made in Belize were influenced by the template used for a recent magazine cover design. This commission was completed a few weeks before I took off on my travels. The simple format of juxapositioned squares can be cropped and sized very easily in photoshop, a tool I'm increasingly using in my work this year. Almost all the material I accumulated while in Belize was collected on a digital camera, and adjusted on the computer. However I have resolved that all the originals I create will still be printed out and framed on mounting board.
