Aaron Brumbelow shares an intimate series
Aaron Brumbelow is an Arkansas native artist currently exploring personal landscapes and daily habits through the medium of photography. Brumbelow received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2008 and his Master of Fine Arts in Photography from SCAD in 2013. He self published his first book, Old Folk’s Singing, in 2010 and continues to publish with his online magazine Touch.My.Prints. Most recently Brumbelow’s work was featured at the SCAD Museum of Art in the exhibition In Passing: American Landscape Photography. Currently, Brumbelow resides in Savannah, GA as a working artist and educator. Today we share his series, Domestic.
Domestic is an on-going project inside my home located in Savannah, GA. The work focuses on self portraiture and interior landscapes. The images speak about the dichotomy of being comfortably alone within my own space while wanting to share the space with a significant other. The work shows scenes of my daily habits and observations of the home. The self portraits are distant and discreetly captured by my camera; a surrogate for another person I have yet to realize. Through careful, photographic observations of the home I am seeking what I have and what I am missing.
The title Domestic uses the word’s multiple definitions. It can mean, of or relating to the home, household affairs, or the family. Domestic can also mean, no longer wild. As I venture into new stages of my life I have matured in unexpected ways. As an only child, being the center of attention became expected in my younger years. Now, entering my 30’s, those expectations have shifted to new humbling experiences.
