Love Letter Collages

Love Letter Collages

When we first moved into our house, we found a packet of love letters hidden in the cellar. These letters seem to chronicle the beginnings of love, to marriage, to divorce. And quite possibly an affair. I have considered several options for these letters. I have let them sit in the drawer while I considered the options. Perhaps trying to use them as a basis for a novel or short story. Or maybe just putting them back. It feels very voyeuristic to be reading them. And especially to make up a story surrounding them. But as a photographer, Iím sort a voyeur by nature. So, I decided to use them in some photo collages.

The making of Colored Thread photos

The making of Colored Thread photos

In an effort to make some more of this fabric art, I went to the craft store. While looking at different types of thread and embroidery silks, I spotted these spools of thread. They were in a clear plastic container and so many lovely colors. I had been having trouble deciding which colors to buy. This made it easy. All the colors!

I got them home and started eyeing them as art in their own right. I donít usually set up scenes or items for shooting as fine art. I shoot product photographs for a living, so itís not something I do in my art. But these spools were calling to me. So, I set them up in my studio, where the natural light is perfect.

I began with them set up like little soldiers, all in a perfect line. I was shooting, moving the colors around, but keeping the same basic line. And then my cat happened.

Before I could do anything, he jumped up on the table and swiped them all down with his paw. I decided I liked this layout. It gave a more natural feel to the spools of thread.

However, he still wanted to help with layout. I let him pick which colors stayed on the table and which went on the floor. I think heís got great taste.
