Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

The Window Series

Posted in art, black and white, photography by Jason Gray on July 11, 2011

I arrived at the Window Series by feeling a growing fascination with how we perceive and interpret our surroundings. We are infinitely and inextricably both viewers and the viewed upon. All of our desires originate as images observed through a window, or portal, where we look out upon the dark expanse of life and hope for a light. The computer and television work this way, as do the windows of passenger vehicles, and to a degree even our clothing, which enables others to see a projected version of ourselves that we carefully construct and tirelessly maintain.

The Window Series re-imagines the scenes lolling past the car window as roving, abstract compositions, which I have recorded from a passenger seat on my way from one point to another. In this way, they are reflections of my desires at the time, permutations of what was real.

    Tobias, thank you for taking a moment to read the concept and view the series, and also, for the compliment. I really enjoy your work as well, and in fact, I am going to post a link to your blog right now.

    Many thanks for your support.

    Best,
