Miranda, the New Brunswick Portfolio (2005)

 

Miranda, the New Brunswick Portfolio was created from a body of work made over six days in July 2005, working with a single model, Miranda, in the landscape of New Brunswick, where I moved to in 2003. Like the my two earlier provincial portfolios, Miranda, the New Brunswick Portfolio is drawn from a completely new body of work, produced over a specific period of time with a single model, this time in New Brunswick.

Miranda, the New Brunswick Portfolio is made up of ten 8"x10" archival Epson Ultrachome prints on Epson Premium Lustre paper, each presented in an 11"x14" acid-free mat and enclosed as a group within an archival portfolio box. The Portfolio is limited to an edition of 17, including one model and one artist copy.

Miranda, the New Brunswick Portfolio is also available in book form, featuring the ten images from the portfolio, and the full photo diaries of the project.

Miranda's Arbour

All through our session working with an abandoned farm house, I kept glancing at an old barn, almost totally sheathed in vines, and wondering what Miranda could do with the space. As the sun dropped lower in the sky, the stark contrast between the vines and the open, black doorway behind them served as the perfect backdrop for a classic pose, and the shadow on Miranda‘s hip just pulls it all together. The final photograph was assembled from eight original images.
