Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

Black and White

Feb 28, 2017 - Aaron Claringbold

This is a selection of images from a new body of work I am developing. Some of these images were taken during the trips that lead to ‘Threeways’ and ‘Two Pandanus Trees Side by Side’, and some have come from more recent travels, attempting to expand and develop on the aesthetics and content of the pervious works. It feels a little strange sharing uncompleted and in progress work, though hopefully it helps me to work through the images and ideas.

The first image pictures was published in Der Grief #9 and was originally attributed to ‘Two Pandanus Trees Side by Side’, when it existed only as a large body of work. After developing it into book form and separating out the black and white images I started to view them as part of a different outcome/output if not a different entity altogether. This new project is as of yet untitled. I have a considerable selection of work and am at the stage where I am just playing around with the selection and sequencing, trying to work out what feels right.
