Roland Barthes described the “blind field” as the space where the photographer’s intention and the viewer’s attention (as informed by their historical/sociological/personal experience) meet. Blind Field is a series of images created by photographing through veils such as windows, computer screens, and the rain. The abstract results explore the void between vision as mediated through lens-based technology and the mind’s-eye. During installation, the viewer is offered a magnifying loupe to examine the materiality of the print down to its fiber.
