"Discovery consists in seeing what everyone else has seen and thinking what no-one else has thought." — Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi

None of the objects in this portfolio of Singularities were created by me. They were found through attentiveness and imaged to foreground my interpretation. Sometimes it is a contrast with the environment, sometimes it is the similarity, and sometimes it is how the object has been transformed beyond its self-contained definition. Often I had to stop and return to the object as my imagination wrestled with the possibilities of seemingly banal settings or objects. In all cases the object is decontextualized in order to better direct the viewer's engagement and to keep the meaning within the photograph. In this sense it is akin to subtractive sculpture - the removing of all unnecessary elements until all that is left is the desired result.

 

These images are not manipulated except for slight edits to their color and exposure to match my feeling of the original scene and minimal cropping to standardize the presentation.
