Trees, Italy 2009
These were made in 2009 on a sabbatical leave from my teaching position at Northeastern University. Driving from Venice to stay in Trieste for three weeks, I came across these stands of trees, interspersed among fields of wheat and corn, in a flat agricultural region near small towns with names like Latisana and Palmonova.
Digital capture is in color, so I made the conversion to black and white in post production, using Photoshop so that I was able to make these as duotones. The inkjet prints are 21 x 14 inches.
I returned to Trieste in the fall of 2012 and photographed the trees again, this time keeping them as color photographs.
