Photographer Meggan Gould, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is drawn to the surface value of mundane, framed spaces usually ubiquitous within our daily lives such as blackboards, computer screens, backs of photos and, in the series above titled Viewfinders, well, camera viewfinders. Though not commonly captured in photography, these images are both interesting and beautiful; some reminiscent of abstract paintings.
The other series of images I especially like is Verso (see bottom photo) in which Gould photographs the backs of photos. I always get a kick out of reading the backs of old photos and often wish that more photos had notes. But Gould’s images are more than just about the writing; many just show old tape marks or general deterioration, and those, surprisingly, are just as appealing.
You can check out the rest of the Verso series as well as more of Gould’s photographs on her site.
Love the idea of giving prominence to the barrier between reality and perception. Thanks for the treat as always CollabCubed!!
