I can officially say that something has come full-circle in my photography career. During college and for part of my 'Senior Project', I photographed mobile homes. That is, I photographed the very front-ends of them and arranged them in a grid form, much like Bernd & Hilla Becher. The idea sort of took on a life of it's own. To begin with, I was shooting with a Hasselblad, which has a square format. The subjects themselves were square and the grouping on the wall when hung for gallery space was also square. Another strange thing (pointed out to me when I finished the project) is the fact that the total number of images was 81. All arranged in a square grid. 9 across. 9 down. It's the number 9 that apparently has numerological significance (I'll leave the reader to research).
Last Spring while on location for a client in Virginia, I was asked to photograph a mobile home. Truthfully, it's actually a camper. Close enough. I figured I had genuine experience shooting this subject so I was rather excited by the challenge. So, pulling from both the artistic and advertising sides of my brain I came up with the above shot. It was photographed pre-dawn, it was very cold outside and I had to use my rental Buick as a prop. The moon in the shot was not planned. Just a gift.
