The book artist’s story behind Porch Swing
“Seeking subject matter for photographs, I often work in a very small area and shoot from various angles. This porch in North Carolina is about 6′ x 15′ and is punctuated by a porch swing on the east side. (A forked twig in a pool of light on the floorboards just happened to be in the right spot for the composition.) The play of light was visually intriguing as it dramatically defined surfaces and volumes.
