Carl Leet: Personal Photography
The images presented here were made over a year’s time.
The early morning and late afternoon light moving through our kitchen and yard was like a slow motion scavenger hunt spotlighting objects as time and the seasons moved forward. The French have a word for that kind of light, eclaircie, a sunny spell or a bright interval. Watch and you will see the sun dappled patterns move across a yard of fresh cut grass, like watching a dance that is yours alone to view. These intervals pointed to color, tone, texture, value, contrast, and shape. I enjoyed making these compositions and finding the light.
“This is personal photography, an exercise in vision, for the joy of seeing. The world around us is a source of wonder, constantly changing and can bring much delight. What visual excitement will you find today and capture?”
