Building Pictures

by Rebecca Robertson

Sam Falls and Jessica Eaton



Falls is part of a growing contingent of studio-based photographers who have little interest in traditional distinctions between mediums and genres. Taking up whatever materials and techniques fit their needs, they work with Photoshop and the chemical darkroom and often shoot with large format cameras. They also incorporate found imagery culled from books, magazines, and the Internet. They build their pictures with wood and mirrors, fabric and plaster, ignoring differences among mediums. While these artists don’t adhere to a particular sensibility or look, they share a set of tools and are reacting to the same forces including the changing nature of photography itself.
