Printing Our Hollywood Hills Collection
This series is inspired by the work of Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri and his constant inquiry into the fiction of photography and the natural world. The prints in this collection similarly look to explore the disruption between environment and their photographic representations.
The seemingly monumental, mountainous images in the series are actually photographs taken of the giant snow mounds that built up around Boston during the recent 'polar-vortex'. Documented from certain angles and specifically frame, these snowy accumulations come to resemble an epic mountain range.
We produced the prints while on residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium. They had a terrific vacuum printing table that allowed for us to easily pull big solid colors as our background palette.
