I often dream of running away to live in the desert and re-enacting what I imagine was how Agnes Martin lived.

Erin O’Keefe is a New York based photographer. I love how her work plays with dimensions, and sometimes even looks like a painting. Her use of colour is very playful and seems really unusual for photography.

a few shots from this past summer…
The graveyard shots are from a really old graveyard just outside of Redstone in British Columbia. I am planning on using them, especially the colours, in some drawings/paintings/watercolours.
Sadly, my digital camera died this summer, so I will be getting a new one soon. This is a blessing in disguise as the old one was pretty pathetic, and I am going to invest in a good quality camera this time around. Hopefully my photography will improve aswell. I still try and use traditional film a lot.. these shots are a mix of digital and film. I think the films ones are much more successful; you can really tell the difference in quality. Photos 1, 4, 7, 8, and 9 are all film..
