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.

Though there is no telling in advance what images will make up the final collection of ten, I’ve always ensured that each portfolio included at least one portrait - Victoria in an abandoned house, and Cassandra in the woods. For the portrait of Miranda, it ended up somewhat mirroring the image of Victoria, as a window nude. The window was somewhat of a foil, with the main light for the portrait coming from a large open doorway beside the camera, but the space as a whole was rich with potential.
