Turnabout of Annoyance, Artist’s Statement

Turnabout of Annoyance is a  continuing series that looks to find the good in, or a solution to, unavoidable annoyance.

The first installment focuses on one of the biggest annoyances for me as a photographer, power lines. Constantly I find myself wanting to photograph a view or an architecturally interesting building but power lines and poles clutter the scene.

I wish I could just wave my hand and have them disappear for a minute or so, but unfortunately my Hogwarts letter never came. This prompted me to try and think of these objects in a positive light and embrace what once annoyed me.

D. Xavier Knox, Photographer
