In 2018 I started attaching the description “working the angles” to some of the digital photographs I posted on Instagram because their compositions focused on strong geometric elements. I liked the cheeky allusion to a con artist who “works the angles” of a complicated situation, using questionable methods to gain the upper hand.
Compared to my other digital photographs, these continue to emphasize form over subject. I target lines, shapes, and patterns I can use to make interesting two-dimensional compositions. Using a monochromatic palette helps me keep the focus on formal elements, and the meanings of the objects or places in these pictures is secondary.
If you would like to see more pictures from this series, your can find them in my Working the Angles collection on Behance.
