This series was both my first exploration of the digital image as a database-oriented form, and of the role of absence in images. The project was comprised of a series of photo-shoots in which the truth of the captioned image relied more on my placement of the camera than on any visible evidence in the image.
I photographed various points in Manhattan while standing on the highest points of Midwestern counties, taking care with a compass to point in the right direction. (These also ended up as a series with New Catalogue.)
More research or exercise than project, Site Unseen was simply an exploration of the many extra-visual mechanisms by which photographs claim and verify truth.
Many series comprised this project: two are provided below.
