Photography by Frank Styburski
Thank you for looking at my photographs today.
Alfred Hitchcock spoke about a device he frequently used in his movies. It was the memorized plans in The 39 Steps, and the microfilm in North by Northwest. He called it a MacGuffin. An unimportant thing to move the action along- and quickly forgotten.
My pictures are like that. Less about the objects I photograph than the shapes, lines colors and patterns they make in the space they occupy. Excuses to engage your attention long enough to take you to an alternate visual place. Their new identities begin to emerge, and the things we thought we were looking at don’t matter as much.
I try to look at everyday things less literally,- to see past the way we know the familiar, and open myself to be surprised.
I hope that you enjoy what you see.
