James T. Murray, Untitled II
Untitled II

This series came about as a result of James T. Murray’s belief that we are approaching a point where everyplace has been photographed. Murray loves travel and photographing landscapes and vistas, but the once exotic places he dreamed of going when he was younger now have been photographed, uploaded, and downloaded ad infinitum. So, he decided to begin looking inward instead. This series was shot in Murray’s studio in New York City using a very high resolution digital back and studio lights. What exactly was photographed is about as inorganic a substance as you can think of. The artist was drawn to how natural and organic it appears in imagery. The subject’s lack of scale and context is mysterious and fascinating.
