I was going through my image files today, getting prepared for an exhibition that I am applying for (more about that another time). My files are full of images that I haven’t done anything with yet, just waiting for their time to be noticed. Sometimes, when I create images they don’t really speak to me at that moment in time. I have learned to be patient and revisit them at another time. Not always, but often, the images will speak to me months or years after I’ve created them.
As I was reviewing image folders, I found several different groups that had a similar point of view. They were all taken at ground level and very close up, sort of like an ant’s view. So I began to put them into one collection and see where that leads.
Perhaps because we are on the cusp of spring, these four images particularly appealed to me today, so I thought I would share them with you. Meanwhile, I will continue to think about the idea of shooting with the perspective of an ant.
