Blair Bodden submits Grace Weston

Grace Weston is a Portland photographer that uses constructed imagery to create her art. Weston creates staged vignettes and narratives that use an assortment of props address a variety of emotions. Weston states that “she constructs sets as well as fabricates and finds props and characters to express her inner world, creating these vignettes that incorporate narration, humor and a sense of psychological tension.” Weston again goes with the narration and story telling theme that I have posted in most of my blogs. There is still a sense of looking at the imagery with Weston’s work and the ending or filling in the gaps of the narrative is up to the viewer. She completely constructs the images she will capture which in my opinion could be considered another example of alternative process for photography. She combines the best of both worlds in my opinion, photography with a sense of sculpture even if it is on a small scale.
