Artist: Daniel Gebhart de Keokkeok

I'm interested in Daniel Gebhart de Keokkeok's "The Days Off" series because I think his project has a similar feel to my project. He's not dealing specifically with memory but rather he's covering diverse subject matter, but doing it in a way that the project still holds together. This is something that I am working on myself because I have lots of different types of imagery associated with this project and I'm struggling to reign it all in and sequence it in a way that it will be cohesive. I also like that he is traveling and combining images from different areas into the same series, I'm planning a trip to North Carolina this coming weekend and I'm interested to see how the images will blend with the shots I have from the Richmond area.
