The photographic compositions from Mark L. Eshbaugh Eventhough are a combination of imagery that seem to be the same space, placed by split images using 120mm filmwhile exploring the medium and human memory. He might skip some of the images,but the way he grids it out, still makes sense allowing the viewer to fill the spaces with their own memories.
Eshbaugh concepts can be categorized as globalism in the art world by portraying the human relationship and interaction with earth which is something we all had experienced before. The way we individually respond to an environment defers from everyone's perception. The artist states on newlandscapephotography.com that
"Everyone views the world from their personal perspective, seeing their environment in a unique way. Any two people will recall different images of the same scene or event. My images serve as a metaphor to those landscapes seen by many eyes and varying recollections. The fragmented pieces of our communal memory of an event are presented as they are truly experienced by the population in multiple frames, viewpoints, and perspectives".
With his works, Eshbaugh evaluates the way people captures a mental image reminding only certain elements that are part of a memory.
I think Eshbaugh works goes beyond the aesthetic elements but his conceptual background using memory, earth and photography film as global elements that makes it readable to everybody.
I also enjoy the fact that whichever place you want to move the imagery will make sense.
