Year of Mornings

BeschreibungThe morning hours before the hustle and bustle of the day commences is the perfect time to pause and enjoy a sense of renewal and vitality. On the morning of December 7, 2006, Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes each took a digital photo of everyday objects randomly arranged on their kitchen tables and, unbeknownst to one another, uploaded them to the website Flickr.
"A Year of Mornings" collects 236 images - always taken before 10AM without discussion between the two women - from this uniquely 21st-century artistic collaboration. The intimacy of these photographs - discarded clothing, a view of a snowy day from the window, a table cloth - combined with their striking similarities in color and composition defies the reality of their long-distance collaboration. While clearly kindred spirits, the two women have met in person only once. Their friendship is maintained solely online, sustained by a shared love for moments of serenity, solitude, and peacefulness. The annotated photographs in "A Year of Mornings" radiate an aura of sweetness and light - the promise of a new day.
PortraitMaria Alexandra Vettese is an artist, letterpress printer, and graphic designer in Portland, Maine. Stephanie Congdon Barnes is an artist and toymaker in Portland, Oregon.
