These pictures were an exploration of photographic possibilities. My inspiration had been photographs by Edward Weston, Andre Kertesz and Brassai, Lee Friedlander and Gary Winogrand. While committed to a straight-forward vision (found subject matter, whole-frame compositions, conventional silver-gelatin process, air-dried glossy prints), I had begun to practice a more printerly approach to photography by selectively masking and toning some of my prints.
