A PARTICULAR GEOGRAPHY AND HOW WE OCCUPY A CERTAIN PLACE?02/26/2013
Geography is the study of physical features of the earth, human activity and how that space and the people within occupy a particular place. How they relate… the nature and relative arrangement of places and physical features and how we exist within. Photography is also a study of relationships. A geography within a frame. It is not any sort of accurate representation of a place. It is not a road map of Paris, Texas or a tour of Paris, France. It speaks directly but is not wholly accurate.
Adam Gerlach and I just finished Strant Print Publication 003. Adam has never been to Paris, Texas or Paris, France but the work he contributed to Strant PP003 is directly about both. About how we exist within a particular geography and how we can bridge two places even having never fully occupied either, slightly transient but fully in relation to wherever we might be… Paris, France, Paris, Texas or another place entirely.
