Secret Project

July 14, 2011 The Press 5 Comments

OK, so I have more than one “secret project,” but this is one of them. I had the opportunity to photograph a new winery taking shape the other week. It is going to be a beautiful and fitting space for the winemaker and it is a privilege to watch it come together.

The half finished state of the winery inspired me to find the emotion in the texture of the materials. Not having something “finished” to shoot forces you to realize that all things are “finished” in their own unique way.

“The Secret Project” will be revealed at a later date.

    I like how your mind works. What I take away from “all things are ‘finished’ in their own unique way” is a feeling of beauty and innocence. There is something so intriguing about the unknown or untouched. An idea of what could be…the beauty of it in its purest form.

  2. Wayne says:

    Courtney, I think that is very true. Everything has a potential, and yet even on its own, that potential is complete already, if that makes any sense.

    I think I have taken a lot from walking sustainable vineyards, vineyards that try to allow nature to be as unobstructed as possible. There is something beautiful about the raw materials of a field, a stack of rocks, a weed. The art is already there, we just have to look at it the right way.

    Thank you Jason!

Bonny Doon: Day of the Doon IX {Photo Essay}

We have grown rather accustomed to long trips for short stays, so much so that a 500 mile weekend is not such a big deal anymore. There are a lot of events we are invited to and we can only attend a few of them. But when Randall Graham asks you to attend, you attend. […]

Secret Project {the reveal}

A few weeks ago I posted the “Secret Project” with some shots of  a friend’s new winery taking shape. At the time, the space was still in a raw state, holes in the ground, bare walls, cut concrete. In terms of photographing a new winery, one might say there was not much to see, no […]
