Evan Trine’s photographic practice presents new perspectives on the familiar. Though formally varied, his projects frequently manipulate the roles of individual elements so that the formal, conceptual and technical aspects of photography are transferred, or translocated to the final object. By eschewing traditional darkroom chemistry for digital processes, his work is directly linked to the software and digital tools used to create it. Trine’s methodology broadens his interest in aspects of process, language, and materiality, regularly incorporating the use of common references as source material to investigate object relations. Content, ranging from old family photographs, newspaper headlines, portraits of friends, and images of second-rate paintings –are manipulated by computer to create the most condensed, simplified, essential version of that visual data.
