 "To me, it suggests that the most significant part of an experience - a person, a time of life, or a challenge - is often not recognized until something brings it into conscious perception. Here the late afternoon light elongates shadows that prove more significant visually and emotionally than the trees casting them. The shadows suggest questions, answers or thoughts beyond the trees themselves." Scott Mead

 

Hung in Gallery 10, the image was made from a large format 8x10 inch film negative created with a lens that does not entirely cover the negative. Thus it projects and captures the entire field of what the lens 'sees' rather than being limited by the more traditional rectangular or square format.
