What was my immediate association as soon as I saw this first photograph? Lonely loos. Two bright green loos in the middle of cold icy nowhere. I love the visual – and I do suspect it won’t smell too bad? The other photos appeal to my longing for space. But I am not sure it will be fun in the cold…
Beautiful photographs from the series ‘Signs of American Life’ by Stephen Tamiesie / Words from the photographer:
My photographs analyze the relationship between humanity and environment in a muted and simple manner. In the broadest sense, all humans identify with an environment, whether on a macro level of habitation and commerce or locally through interactions within ones culture. My purpose in examining this relationship with a camera is to document the effects that humanity brands upon its environment, whether visible or obscured. The resulting images illustrate a simultaneous portrait of domain, human existence and control – byproducts of a relationship that all individuals have with the space around them.
