After trying to capture a long exposure image of the stars while camping, Chris McCaw accidentally forgot to close the shutter before sunrise. The result was an image so overexposed that the film was physically changed.
Since then, Chris has perfected the process and compiled his work into a fantastic book.
In my junior year of college, I had a crazy idea for a project for my directed study class. I wanted to create my own view-master reels, and to my surprise a view-master camera not only existed, but was available for purchase. Everything about this camera was a difficult trial and error challenge, but the end results are a one of a kind gem.
Each post so far has been an introduction to each location and setting. There will be a couple more of these as Tetsu has photographed me in six different locations and we will be shooting more for I See Who You Are throughout the summer. This shot was taken on a playground in Bushwick at dawn. It was the last photo shoot we had before it became almost too cold to work on our project and so I post this as a way to usher in warmth. The days are getting more and more pleasant and I’m growing ever inspired to make ISWYA my main artistic endeavor. I can’t wait to get these preliminary posts out of the way so that I can start to share more lyrical and abstract thoughts along with new images. Thank you to all who are watching.
Here is my 4th post on I See Who You Are! Everything is aleady going so well!
