Sheridan O'Neal submits Jo Babcock
Babcock has spent his career creating and experimenting with different cameras made from found objects such as suitcases, guitar cases, msg cans, and many more. He creates small and mural size photographs with these cameras. His paper negatives are known for their manipulated distortions and use of color which creates a painterly aspect to his landscape photos. I appreciate his ingeniutiy and ability to transform such a large number of familiar objects into cameras that create interesting and successfull photos. I think his landscape photos are more interesting then when he photographs objects.
