Chase the Light 2023

Photographic Center Northwest’s annual summer fundraiser/global photo experience/pop-up photo show, Chase the Light, is upon us, and I’m excited to share my submission for this year.

“Untitled (Cowboy)”

From my series, Simulacra and Simulation, this photograph is the product of combining two separate AI systems, ChatGPT and Midjourney, together to create an interpretation of a seminal photographic work that was displayed on my monitor. I photographed my monitor with a Hasselblad 501CM and Tri-X film, which I hand-developed, thus creating a brand-new, ‘real’ photograph.
