People vs Places was a seven-year collaborative series of double exposure 35mm prints between Stephanie Bassos and Timothy Burkhart, that fuses people and environments through independently captured photos. Stephanie shoots only people, and then passes the camera back to Tim who shoots only places. Neither know what the other has shot. When processed, the negatives are virtually unedited: without digital manipulation, and with minor color adjustments and dust removal.
Each image becomes the summation of discovery through happenstance; the photographs ultimately portray fictional worlds, compositions that evoke individual narratives created by the viewer. Through this process driven collaboration we are able to mirror the way in which people individually wander in space, continuously crossing paths in place without conscious intention.
