the Quadruped at the Sheldon Church Ruins, photographed by Max Cooper

The Quadruped

The photos here are the result of a collaboration with NC-based photographer Max Cooper in August 2019.  The work is made possible by my amazing patrons to which I give thanks with every knobbly knee'd step this monster takes.

The Quadruped is a character that sprang into existence seemingly out of nowhere.  I don't know why I made it; only that I had to.  Its construction was inspired by the sublime natural landscapes of rural South Carolina, especially the draping of Spanish moss,.  Naturally, we had to take it to a few beloved lowcountry landmarks to photograph it in its native habitat.

The full story is available here for patrons, but here is a smattering of the images from a day in which we shot for hours in 100 degree heat and would have done it again the next day.  

You can see more of Max's work here and here.
