CBG Cemeteries Class visits Ft. Sheridan

In the first of two cemetery visits, all 12 students made it to the Fort Sheridan Military Post Cemetery. Since most of the headstones are of the same type and design, the student goal was to concentrate on lines and patterns. Students were encouraged to emphasize the lines by shooting in black and white. The class visits Graceland next week. Come back to enjoy images of some very unusual monuments and headstones.

 

The stark simplicity of military headstones.

A bright, but cold Ft. Sheridan morning.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
