Weapon, Shapely, Naked, Wan

Dillon DeWaters’ new book, Weapon, Shapely, Naked, Wan, is a rumination on the uncanny, on the anomalous phenomena within the everyday. Taking as their starting point a text, Walt Whitman’s “Song of the Broad-Axe,” and a place, Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, the photographs build a world of the unfamiliar within the recognizable. Using techniques of in-camera masking and multiple exposures, DeWaters creates a fictive world wherein memory becomes palimpsest, overwritten, erased, perhaps apocryphal. The places contained herein are supernatural, perhaps preternatural, on their surface but, beneath, there is a sense of the cozy, the familiar, even the banal. DeWaters is reordering our geometries and our color palettes to create in us a new vision, a new way of seeing. Is it our eyes that are turning space inside out? We watch, through the continuous image stream within the pages, as Whitman asserts, “The shapes arise!”
