The Intimate Vessel is a growing body of work created by photographer and visual artist Brooks Fletcher. In this photographic series, Fletcher examines the medium’s capacity to challenge attitude and perception. He photographs lines, shadows, and reflections found in everyday street scenes using a 4x5-inch large format film camera and color reversal film – a photographic film that produces a positive image on a clear base. Instead of reproducing the image onto paper using an analog or digital process, the transparent photographs are backlit us- ing a battery-powered LED panel, then archived in a thoughtfully-crafted frame. These one-of-a-kind photographs extend an alternate approach toward pho- tography in the age of digital reproduction.
