i document the world around me,
people places and things. i would consider
some of my work to be documentary in nature.
atget, both his portraits of people and places, would
be one of my influences.
but aside from photographing people and sites "in context"
some of my abstract images, both darkroom experimentation as well as the other "stuff",
are also documentary, they RECORD an experiment that i carried out.
while abstract imagery doesn't usually fall into journalistic documentation, it is documentary / record
much like someone in the science field would record his/her observations.
