Faux Film Posters
For many years, of my work was straight color photography documenting subjects of distraction, abandon and yearning; places that appear fictional, but are real. Commercial places of leisure; motels, bars, restaurants, hot dog stands were the settings for the theme of loneliness and desperation. The photographs were made at night on a tripod, and have saturated, lurid colors from the available light.
As I have embraced the digital age, I have used these photographs as settings for implied narratives in the form of posters for movies that do not exist. These “posters” enable me to combine many of my interests, such as mysteries, writing, humor, typography and graphic design with photography while poking fun at our hypocritical culture of greed, violence, mystery, and deception.
