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.

When working on a portfolio I tend to focuson making images that speak really clear to me, as opposed to trying to break my own preconceptions about what I like. With this image, Miranda and I had already made a composition using this space, but I felt on some levels what we’d done was too obvious, so I asked Miranda to come up with another option. She shrugged, and pulled her legs up from the first pose…and I asked her to stop. The final image is assembled from six photographs.
