This portrait is part of a series that shows characters in transitional states. It winds from Alan Welter’s workshop and adhesives factory in 1961, to contemporary times with Hollis Wolfram’s aquatic re-emergence from Lake Elster. The objects in the photographs allude to stories and act as symbols for characters who are physically absent from the images. The inclusion of flat, stage-like, painted elements heightens the fictional nature of the narrative and questions the dimension of believability in the images.

I like what this young artist is up to; it’s dynamic. He should keep on working.
