The Intimate Vessel is a growing body of work created by photographer and visual artist Brooks Fletcher. In this photographic series, Fletcher examines the lived experience and medium’s capacity to challenge attitude and perception. He photographs lines, shadows, and reflective surfaces found throughtout 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 archived and backlit in a thoughtfully-crafted, 8x10-inch metal frame fitted with a battery-powered LED panel. These one-of-a-kind photographs extend an alternate approach toward photography in the age of digital reproduction.
