Debbie and I returned to Central Park this past September, approximately one year after she was in a near-fatal car accident. For this shoot as with our last, we pursued Debbie’s vision: “What art allows you to do as a viewer is to finish the story. It doesn’t tell you what to think.”
When I retouch images, I generally do not stray far from the original picture. Debbie, on the other hand, uses photos as a starting point to create her final result. For the images from this session, including the one featured here, Debbie subtracted information by shifting tonality. I like the results of her post-production: she pushes images to places where I do not ordinarily tread.
