Matthew Fertel 🖼️
Postcard From The Mesozoic
Without Any Purpose
Postcard From The Mesozoic and Without Any Purpose are part of a series called Waste Management, which consists of compositions created from details of dumpsters, trash cans and other refuse / recycling / green waste receptacles.
Both were captured with an older iPhone, which is my current creative tool of choice. Accepting its “limitations,” I have learned what to expect from my iPhone under different conditions and how to take advantage of what it has to offer. I shoot full-frame with little or no cropping to maintain high resolution for printing. Basic editing is done post-capture. No filters or effects are used.
