DETAILS:

Donuts, for me, is an exemplary image of a lot of the ideas being tied together in my project, 1947, Roswell. The donuts are fun, playful, colorful, stacked and styled in a sort of editorial fashion, yet there’s an uncanniness to them. The frosting is cracked and imperfect, one donut is different than the rest, and they seem to be almost floating in a black abyss. When making this image, I was thinking about our classical mid-century American imagery of police officers eating donuts, as well as donuts as a stand-in for common descriptions of flying saucers and U.F.O.s. The image became significant in it’s imperfection – it’s both beautiful, and just a bit “off,” asking the viewer to question it’s very significance. In the project it plays a pivotal role, paired with the arched entry of the police station, subtly conjuring up that imagery of the wholesome donut-eating police officer of the 1940’s, who becomes tied in to one of the most bizarre and compelling pieces of our modern cultural narrative.
