"Going Nowhere: People, Places and Things Unseen" Part I/III

It seems foremost the practice of modern man to go without thinking. He goes to work, they go to school, she goes to shop and we are collectively Going Nowhere. We live in a time where the journey is subservient to the destination, not because, I think, the nature of mans spirit has changed so much as the nature of his world and the conveniences about him. When one might have, a hundred years ago, experienced the clouds, the breeze and the world on his way to the market, man now must seek those same experiences separately apart from his routine. It was, firstly, my intention in creating this body of work to focus my eye, thought and time on places I found fanciful, but as it evolved and as I explored more I found those unseen in-between places to be those which caught my imagination most. I started this work in the hopes of going somewhere, and found myself instead Going Nowhere.

            Gary Winogrand once said “No one moment is most important. Any moment can be something”, and by this I have sought to adhere. In my work “People, Place and things unseen” I set out first to capture those places by which the modern man would pass on route to somewhere more important. Storefronts, street corners, windows, night lamps, and alleys were just a few of the places I attempted to train my eye in setting out on this project, and while those static, and often empty, places seemed unusual and unexplored it was the people and objects I found within those places which seemed most interesting.

            Since my initial proposal a great deal of this work has changed, as once I set out for a destination I soon found myself seeking a journey, and in the same guise as Gary Winogrand and street photographers like him I focused a greater deal of attention on creating emotion and capturing more fleeting moments.

            Here is my work; A collection of People, Places, and Things Unseen.

Age of Anxiety: To Premiere October of 2014
My next major project, AGE of Anxiety, will be an exploration of anxiety in the modern American landscape. The project will correspond with a time in my life where I find myself addressing anxiety for the first time, and a time in the history of the United States when we, as a society, find ourselves increasingly anxious, strained by fear of terror, crime and separation. 
I feel that post 9/11, the American landscape finds itself closed off, distant, paranoid and anxious in ways many suffering from anxiety disorders might find familiar. It is my goal with this project, to reveal this to some as well as to find a way of channeling my own anxieties in a constructive way.
All photographs will be shot analogue with a Zenza Bronica ETRS on medium format film. For questions, inquire here. To see my latest project “Modern Stages” visit www.sucenaphotography.com
