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.

Weathered Wood

I have always loved the look of weathered wood, and when Miranda and I saw this barn, we both knew we’d end up working with the worn exterior. I asked Miranda to work her way in amongst the hay on the side of the barn, and when she found a good enough place to stand, the pose began to come together. It was only when I asked her to put her head inside the opening, under the lintel, that everything fell into place for the final composition.
