James Friedman is a teacher, curator, editor and photographer from the United States. He received his BFA from Ohio State University and was one of five students accepted into the experimental graduate program, Toward a Whole Photography, at MIT. He later earned his Masters in Photography from San Francisco State University.
In a personal project entitled Interior Design, Friedman explains:
“Curiosity led me to cut my collection of golf balls in half to see what the cores looked like. To my surprise, what I found inside inspired me to consider that I could discover, in the unlikeliest of places, elegant formal qualities and surprising metaphorical possibilities. Interior Design has moved me to be enthusiastic about abstraction, an exciting corollary to my work as a documentary photographer.
Incidentally, I do not play golf.”
Below you will find a selection of the twenty different golf balls sliced perfectly in half. You can view the complete series at JamesFriedmanPhotographer.com. There are many other projects also shared on his website that exhibit Friedman’s broad range of photographic pursuits.
Friedman also offers classes, workshops and individual instruction and is available for commissioned projects.[via Feature Shoot]
