Compare this image with the previous photograph. In that one, I used metaphor to symbolize blindness to the future. In this one, I turn the metaphor around to imply blindness to the past. The future, on the other hand, is in full view. I abstract the cab of a restored 1930s oil truck by photographing its windshield from the outside. It wiper blades are at the ready, prepared to keep the glass pristine. Yet the cab’s rear window is opaque – the tanker behind it blocks the view to the rear. No hindsight here – this image is geared to imply only full speed ahead. Some of the elements of my personal photographic style should be easier for you to recognize by now – metaphor, abstraction, incongruity, human values, implication, symbolization, and the use of color, in this case a deep yellow, to energize the image.
