I took a course in documentary photography. We needed to create a final project, but I made nothing… Instead, I brought my old Polaroid camera to the last class and took pictures of the final critique as it was happening. I then pinned the images to the wall and called them my final project about documentary photography. I think I got an A.

Vein In My Eye

I have a beautiful red squiggly in my eye… This photograph was shot by hooking my dSLR camera up to 4 inches of bellows, a macro reversal filter and then a reversed old Pentax 50mm lens (put on backwards). Nothing beats the strange qualities of a makeshift lens.

In 2006 I lived in a building that had an underground tunnel with lots of pipes, stairs, and metal boxes. Late one night I had the idea to bang on things and record the sounds they made. I then took a snapshot of the area where sounds came from… The project was abandoned. In 2012 I took the sounds and mixed them into beats. “Potential Rhythm” is the final project. Here are two.

I accidentally dropped a wine glass and it broke. I decided to save the broken shards to do something with. I then glued fishing line to each piece and suspended them above a table. Suspended in time.

Book Pile

I spray painted a whole bunch of books completely white for a photograph idea. This was not that photograph. They just happened to be in a pile in my living room and I took a few random pictures. I think there’s something to this one.

While walking through the market I came across this group of funny fruit. I suppose someone got a little bored / creative at work / while shopping. This should become a normal thing, in my opinion.

Every so often I like to pick an old photograph and “remix” it in Photoshop (mostly out of boredom). This one ended up a little cartoonish and also quite creepy in the end.
