SLIDE SHOW: Dirk McDonnell's Winter in Maine

SLIDE SHOW: Dirk McDonnell’s Winter in Maine
0 votes, 0.00 avg. rating (0% score)

When Maine photographer Dirk McDonnell first began using a large-format view camera, he was intrigued
by the way that — owing to its flexible bellows — he could selectively focus on certain elements while throwing others out of focus. Using this technique, he initially turned his attention to Maine’s winter landscape as a way of layering abstraction onto something which — with its bare-bones suppression of detail and minimalist reductionisms — already seemed to lean into a world of floating abstraction. Happy with the results, he employed the same basic technique on subsequent trips to Europe and Mexico. The following slide show represents a series of work taken in Maine during the winter of 2001.
