Jessica Eaton




An unforeseen fascination with sizzling, bold, graphic and sometimes abstract experimentation on FOV at the moment with recent posts.
More interesting, progressive work in a similar vein from young Canadian photographer Jessica Eaton. Her work explores what photography is and can be, looking at the themes of light, time and spatial relations. Creating images of geometry and colour that play with the viewers perceptions, all Eaton's images are created in-camera. No post at all. Which is pretty impressive, especially with the photographs toward the bottom of this page - undoubted homages to Josef Albers and Victor Vasarely - a couple of which look almost entirely computer-generated. The experimental colour photographic work of James Welling seems to have spurred a generation of young photographers to experiment with what can be achieved with the medium, and Eaton is pushing things in an interesting direction, along with peers such as Caleb Charland and Niall McClelland. When she works, she has no clear defined final image in mind when she begins each series, instead setting out with an idea of what the outcome may be, but going with the flow. As she says, "each time I shoot, the results influence the next step. I often like to leave a lot of space for accidents to happen and am most satisfied with the work when it takes on a life of its own." It seems that she is only just beginning to touch on what can be achieved, and we're going to watch her evolution with interest.
Below are a selection of images, not chronological, but showing an evolution of style. And the final shot is something of a reveal, showing one of her studio set-ups.

However exactly how. Contrary to public opinion, the actual replica watches sale was not the very first water-resistant view this was not actually replica watches uk. Whenever Hans Wilsdorf started the actual manufacturer within the earlier 1900s, he or she had been centered on one idea producing strong, precise wrist watches with regard to an average joe.
