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