Carolyn King submits Apollonia Morrill

These photos are part of several separate bodies of work all focusing on site specificity and color studies by Apollonia Morrill. I greatly enjoy the composition of the photos and the color palates of the individual bodies of work. Each grouping seems to focus on a certain color selection and it further emphasizes that the photos are in fact a group. The lighting situations are also very pretty; the faint available light altered by the textured surfaces and the obscure light sources add to the mysterious and quiet atmospheres that are portrayed in Morrill's work. One of the things I've found different when shooting on medium format is that the square is a bit harder to work with as a composition as compared to the rectangle of small format. Morrill works beautifully with the square and I completely enjoy the unique composition of the photos.
