Here are some semi recent photographs which continue my on-going project made in Overland Park. I have well over 200 images in this series now which have all been made over the last couple of years. Regular followers of this blog will know that many images from this project have been posted here over this time and is on the whole largely still unedited. It has been a series which I have felt my way through more than anything else and it has at times acted like a sort of diary from home. Sometimes I have responded closely to the original brief I gave myself and at other times it has been something of an experiment and a place to exercise creativity and explore larger idea's about America. It has also been a way for me to align myself psychically with place. This year I intend to begin tightening up this project and start working in a more methodical way. I want to study local maps more closely, photograph the city boundary's, make more portraits and filling in the gaps of my exploration and then begin to edit it with a view to bringing this project to some kind of conclusion. This will not be easy, but giving myself these guidelines and discipline is important at this time.

  1. I read something a few months back, I think on the BBC news website, about plans for a Museum of Suburbia in somewhere called Overland Park in the USA. Is that the one where you are? It sounds like a great idea, and I can imagine you photographing it. . .
    I think focusing down and getting your project into shape is a good idea. Good luck with it all.
    The face the two pics at the top of the page make is really great!
