Jim Stone Statement


Artist Statement
These photographs are the result of my own wandering, hoping to discover myself in others. I strike up conversations with strangers to find out what they are doing and why they are doing it. I am photographing, they are fishing, flying radio-controlled models, hanging hubcaps on the wall. We share a pursuit of uniqueness. I am genuinely interested in the interchange as well as in the resulting photographs. Viewed in groups, the photographs I display publicly form a larger picture, the way paragraphs add up to a novel, of the America I inhabit. We are fascinating and repellant, odd and familiar, good and bad. I treasure the ironies.


Process Statement
Black-and-white photographs are enlarged from Polaroid Type 55 Positive/Negative film. Color prints are on Fuji Crystal Archive paper.
