Small Worlds is an ongoing series of landscape images conceived as panoramas and realized as stereographic projections that meet, end to end, to make a whole “world ” — a slice of space and time. From a vantage point of a given landscape, I convey scale, juxtaposition, light and color to see a place from where I stand — and to be enveloped by it.
Incorporating math, nature, landscape, and human perception, Small Worlds allows me to skew and wrap the landscape into a circle that gives a sense of miniaturizing and humanizing the vastness of place and space at the ground level. Distractions, view-blocking, distance and other elements in a given landscape provide surprises and wonder in the final images. Fibonacci and the Golden Section can become obvious in the disconnect of spaces within some of these landscapes.
These Small World images are best viewed very large as there are fine details in each piece deserve a closer look.
