Steven Raskin in All About Photo Magazine

Eye on the Prize by Steven Raskin

Juror Sandrine Hermand-Grisel has selected a portfolio by Steven Raskin for the printed exhibition in All About Photo Magazine #13 Shapes. A dozen images from his drone series Hover will be included. With 2 exceptions, they are all abstract views of dry or drying lakebeds (the exceptions being a couple of related desert land formations). Raskin says I think these environments are transformed by seeing them from above, with scale and context removed, into Rorschach-like patterns.
