I refer to this series as The Color of White, which is primarily inspired by my experience of Alaska's immersive and beautiful white-on-white winter landscape. Created by using three separate images captured over time, each artwork in this series usually an hour or so to shoot and then blended over one another to create a colorful multiple exposure image. Mountain landscapes inspire me. Growing up in West Texas's flat planes offered the distant summits of New Mexico, Colorado, California, and now Alaska a certain allure. When I see a mountain, my eyes move skyward, seeking the peak. ~ Tom
⋙ Field Notes
The work in The Color of White is primarily created through the movement of light and weather in front of my camera, but to overcome the fully overcast low cloud days, I have to take a more hands-on approach. The color in Registered Mountain 01 is achieved entirely through the camera's movement. In this image, I composed the first exposure, lowered the camera, and recomposed and photographed it again, and then a third time to make three images of the same peak. I like that we can't make the same image twice or even three times. Things change, and chance happens. This exploration of image-making is referential of Mount Cannon Mists.
