This is my second image from Carhenge, and by far my favorite.
I’ve had more time to work with the digital development and how tonalities are expressed within the details of the sculpture, clouds, grasses and trees. I’ve created at least 10 different versions of the print, and as Ansel Adams would say, depending on how I feel at different times, I’ll probably print this in unique ways for years to come. An example: Adams printed “Moonrise, Hernandez” in a constantly evolving manner for more than 30 years.
I think of this photo as one of the finest black-and-white images I’ve made. It has luminance, emotion, life and dimension, while simultaneously causing the viewer (at least this one) to come back to the image for more time and time again.
I hope you agree.
