Afraid to See - South Carolina

AFRAID TO SEE is a collection of photography that began in January 2006. I began this site as a back-to-the-basics effort to reconnect with the "art" of photography. Initially, all the images here were made on film, but time constraints, a busy career and the inability to easily find black and white film locally, have forced me into using digital cameras.I began Afraid to See with a simple approach: One lens, one film stock, one camera, and minimal Photoshop on my scans. I felt that by imposing these limits, the purity of my vision would manifest itself. Since I wrote that "philosophy" several years ago, I've deviated far from it. I started using only a Leica M3, Tri-X and a 50mm lens, but eventually, used everything from a Lomo LC-A with slide film, to a Nikon F3, N90, EOS-1n, Canon 20D, and even compact point and shoot cameras. Nowadays, most everything I produce is done with the 20D, which is getting a little long in the tooth in its own right. Although that Leica stares at me every day and dares me to pick it up. The first 50 or so images here inspired my first and only gallery exhibition back in November 2006. Sadly, my memories of this period mainly consist of my mother's initial cancer diagnosis, which came months after I created the majority of these images. She never made it to the gallery. As a result, some of these images -- which originally were made to capture frailty, life, and death in the most elemental way -- have taken on a new meaning to me.
