Photo of Stephanie Blumenthal


I live in Western Massachusetts, in the forested Berkshire Hills. Hanging from the branches, twisting around the trunks, I find the overlooked, camouflaged vines to be visually stimulating. I isolate the vines from their chaotic surroundings and try to provide them with an opportunity to be seen by others as they appear to me.


If you dissect man made architectural structures, you realize that they are primarily made up of geometric shapes. Deemphasizing details doesn't only change the photograph into an abstracted image; it highlights the interaction between the different planes.

The overlaid colors give the photograph a painterly quality, yet I held back on the opacity to create tension between the photographic and the abstract, making the end product reside somewhere between the two.
