Prints from the Arbor Series
Cyanotypes on paper, 3 x 2 ft each, 2014
These prints are camera-less photographs. There is no negative; each is unique. They are life-sized renderings of their natural subjects. At once empirical and romantic, they can be regarded as unmanipulated records of the organic world. They are also richly suggestive, capturing a deeply evocative sense of motion and form.
For more than thirty years Tom Fels has been a curator and writer specializing in the history of photography. He began showing his recent art in 2013.
