Visually, I like the shapes of the bales and their placement within the landscape. What interests me is how grass changes its shape, form and use throughout its cycle. I enjoy interacting with the bales, literally running around the fields amongst these temporary sculptures which will most likely be all but a memory the following day.
*Dark and deep in the country side, during the exposure of one of my first Hay Bales attempts, a police car stopped along the field I was in and someone yelled out, “Is that you, Brian?” I replied back “No, it’s Chris.” he replied “oh…ok”…and then he just drove off. Another time while i was running around a salt marsh in waders at night, someone called the police thinking I was “jacking deer.” I don’t think the police had seen me, but I pretty much always I look suspicious, in this case, I was running toward the camera, before the cops headlights ruined my long exposure. Just got it in time. It was all good.
