FOREST IMAGE STUDIES

For a 12 month period, we captured more than 600 photographs of a single forest scene adjacent to our Carlisle studio. Like Claude Monet’s Haystack painting series of the late 19th century, we were interested in seeing how changes in light across various times of day, weather conditions and seasons could create different photographic moods. What emerged from the study was a selection of diverse images that capture the austere, quiet, and dramatic beauty of an everyday New England landscape.

The forest image study is also a metaphor for our work at D&CO. Working closely with our clients, we fully engage a client’s product or service offering, business needs, character, and aspirations for future growth. Our task is to then select from a large volume of information that which is most telling, essential and unique—and amplify these ideas and themes into clear, singular expressions that are rich in form and meaning.

“Sometimes creativity comes in an instant. Sometimes it comes in a careful analysis of a thousand things we see every day. Being able to appreciate it, and express it for others is our focus and passion.”
