I love when the lines of commissioned and personal work blur. Photographing the opening and closing of Isabel Lewis's "Occasions and Other Occurrences" at Long Dock Park in Beacon, New York, brought together the many elements I'm inspired by in my own work; environment, human experience, spirituality, movement, connection, place.
This was a fun commission because it allowed me to be with piece for a longer period of time than if I had been there solely as visitor. Looking at the work through a photographic perspective also gave me the opportunity to contemplate the piece from new angles. As I was editing I was struck by how someone looking at the images might not be able to differentiate a visitor to the park from those performing in the piece. This was an exciting discovery!
