Colour Studies, Minnesota

These images were taken using a Hasselblad film camera on a journey in and around the Superior National Forest, Minnesota in October 2017. Rather than being taken as an end product, I chose to shoot them as sketches; poetic visual story-telling devices.

This decision liberated my approach to capturing the familiar theme of the road trip. The photographs are celebrations of what struck me as interesting, beautiful, bleak; distillations of the colours and textures I observed.
