Quarries of Paris, part 2

Uncategorized July 17, 2017

I posted some more information about the Paris quarries project up over here. It’s something that will remain in an ongoing state for as long as we’re in Paris, but I turned out perhaps a bit more nebulous than I would have liked. Partly, I think it’s because I didn’t set off with a very clear idea, but partly because it’s an enormous subject and I perhaps was trying to shoe-horn too much into one project (a perennial problem…).

Also, while I was at the Beaux Arts, I focused exclusively on photography which may or may not have contributed to the feeling of dissatisfaction with the project — I think it may have been more successful had I conceived of things as more of a mixed bag. It ended up feeling a bit too documentary, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but not exactly what I wanted either. It’s interesting, though, to end up with something that you aren’t very pleased with and to think about why and how to resolve some of those problems for the next project.
