Pete & Chris Coe - Farewell to the brine


Ten images from my fifth Photo Arts assignment.

Our assignment this past week was to photograph “place.” I chose to head to the George Eastman House, a staple of the town of Rochester’s history. I felt that this museum/exhibition space is very idealized and perfectly arranged.

For this assignment, I tried to capture the house in a different, more uncanny light. When the house is closed to the public there’s something very unsettling about it, and I did my best to communicate that within my ten images. Enjoy.

Assignment 02: Snow.

This week, Greg gave us a very broad subject matter to capture. I spent the weekend away from RIT, with my cousin Ben and his wife Amanda in Webster. It wasn’t until I headed back to RIT that I realized their town would be the perfect place to shoot this project.

This past Monday, my friends and I hopped into my car and headed back to Webster. We lucked out - as it seemed to be the one day in the past few weeks upstate New York had some beautiful light. 

In this ongoing series, I’m doing my best to explore form and structure, and its relationship with the town of Webster, New York.

For my first assignment in Photo Arts II, we had to photograph light.

This open-ended project was intimidating to me at first, because I truly did not know where to start. As I began to shoot over the past week, though, I started noticing patterns developing in my body of work. 

In this series, I focused on light, and how it interacts with shape and form. Looking back at some of my work from the past few months, I’ve found that I occasionally include extraneous information within my photographs. I love my 24mm to pieces, but sometimes I believe I let the wide angle of view get the better of me. For this project, I chose to shoot with the intention to crop each image to 1x1 - paying extra attention to my framing. 

I’m wildly excited for this next semester of classes; I’m ready to do more work. 


Quick sneak preview of my engagement shoot with Nitzan and Joe from earlier this evening. We shot in and around The North End, and ended the day with some delicious cannolis from Mike’s. I’m so thrilled to be working with such a wonderful couple!
