TC3 Photography is the website for the photography program at Tompkins Cortland Community College in New York State. The site provides information about the courses and the faculty, and the galleries showcase examples of the students’ work. They were using one of our older non-mobile-friendly templates, so we offered to update the site for them. I chose colors and fonts that remind me of old cameras and projectors. I kept the site design quite simple, and tried to make it look clean and technological.

I love your Flood of Memory series. It’s so dreamlike and evocative, and the figures seem so beautifully vulnerable and untouched. Can you speak a little about your inspiration for the series? Are these places that you’ve visited in your travels or your dreams?
Flood of Memory came, like the title implies, all of a sudden with a very powerful half-conscious vision, and has evolved from that initial fissure into the tension between body and deconstructed environment that it is now. For me, everything is about the body because I very much insist that as human beings we must contemplate the mystery of our existence, particularly our corporeal selves, in order to transcend. The title comes from Proust, who is one of the most painterly writers and a gifted seer.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” -Marcel Proust
“Another weathered barn in my geometric color field series, this one in Flye Point, Maine.”
“I create images that are not seen by the naked eye alone.”
Annette Graham’s work is so strong that I thought a simple design would be best. So the changes I made to her site involved removing design elements rather than adding anything. I made the font of her site title much larger, made the navigation bar font much simpler, and let her arresting image speak for itself!
