Wendy Small
Before the Details 14



Wendy Small's series "Before the Details" are black and white photographs of everyday life, in this image the artist's cat, taken with the artist's cell phone of the first morning light. This light sends strong shadows onto her kitchen wall. The time of day is early: pre-chaos, pre-focus.  Small uses paper negatives and prints them onto Ilford Warmtone paper. These are the first photographs she has shown or printed where she used a camera, in this case her phone, as it was available for these very short moments when the light beamed into a large window in her kitchen and cast shadows of her early morning routine.  Materials: silver gelatin photograph Unframed. Edition 2 of 3.
