Description

"After spending a few hours in the pages of Invisible Presence, I can see once more beyond the familiar to the miraculous." -Scott Russell Sanders, from the foreword In this surprising collection of photographs, acclaimed photographer Darryl D. Jones departs from his usual crisp, highly detailed, panoramic Indiana scenes. Here, Jones has masterfully crafted a series of photographs using processes called "Polaroid emulsion manipulation" and "Polaroid transfer" to create scenes more reminiscent of impressionistic paintings. Invisible Presence includes well over 100 images from a wide range of locations, subjects, and seasons in Indiana. Each image is appropriately accompanied by Norbert Krapf's descriptive poetry.
