Here's where the tools were left at the end of the day.
While preparing a talk on my photographs I came up with a thought that has some pretty big implications. It’s simply this, “Projects end, Themes continue.” As an Engineer and Project Manager by education, I was taught that projects end. That is the nature of projects. What you set out to do is completed, be it a hand built table, a software release or a multi-million dollar chemical plant. The task is completed and you move on to the next project.
I do that with my photographic projects, too. Capture images, process them, create a web folios, a print folios and maybe an exhibition print or two and move on to the next project.
What I have failed to consider is there might be a theme, or common thread running through all my projects that I might be able use. (See the post on Hidden Projects.) I wonder how many projects I have out there that I can create from the images I already have stored on various hard drives, files and boxes?
