indexical (a photoblog)
I am a visual artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and this is my photoblog. I have been posting fairly regularly over the past year (233 photos so far). I think of my photoblog as a photographic notebook, a tool I use to record and develop visual ideas over time. It is also a good excuse to wander around with a camera.

Things I try to keep in mind while working on indexical:

found objects
ephemeral landmarks
pedestrian infrastructure
the city as palimpsest
"the colour of white paper"
how easily a subject slips into symbolism
trace presence; previousness as an indicator of possible future
brief intersections between the unexpected and the everyday
how a place presents itself divided by how a place really is; the remainder of that equation

I hope you enjoy the work.

Yes I am enjoying. Is "camping light" a double exposure, or digitally melded?

Thanks! Camping light is a diptych with two digital photos placed next to each other (there is a thin line between them).
