Jean-Francoise Millet’s scenes of the field have been on my mind lately. I recently moved to the country, and since my closest neighbors are miles away, it has been an introspective time. A sunny afternoon inspired me to take a walk with my dog and my camera. After I set up my tripod and remote in a nearby field, for a self-portrait, my dog ran ahead, and I followed. I looked back at the camera to check if the remote was still in range. The image I got in that moment was not one I had planned. My cap was not how I’d planned to wear it, but this image struck me, because of my expression. In looking back to see whether my shutter had worked, my expression conveyed a true sense of doubt and curiosity. I processed the digital photo to make it closer to Millet’s color palette, then printed it on a 8×10 etching paper, giving the final print some texture.
