I get concerned.


With the gorgeous quality of autumn light I am being inspired to pick up my camera much more often of late.
But sometimes I get concerned about the fact that in general I only photograph in my home...
will that be too repetitive? Especially when my home is a 750 square ft Brooklyn railroad apt.
Is it boring that viewers see the same white cabinets, rumpled bed, 1950's table, red couch...

And then I think I never worried when I took all my picture in the same studio every time.

And I always find comfort in knowing Uta Barth's work (directly below). She has made almost her entire career out of photographing by or out of the same window in her house.




I feel like I know her yellow couch as well as she does. and am actually disappointed when I go to her shows and it is not in any of the images, I look for it, I expect it, I want it.
And I never get bored of getting lost in her images.



So I will keep on photographing the ever changing light on my white cabinets, rumpled bed, and beat up red 1950's kitchen table.

I hope you don't mind.
