Going up north today!
I’ll be driving most of the day with my dad, so sorry if I don’t respond as quick as normal.

here are some outtakes. unretouched, really, from that comic artist shoot a while back.
There are a few cute shots in here. Sort of a peak behind the scenes.

I’m Done.


This year is over!
This is the first year at SCAD that I’ve gotten all As the whole way through and it was my hardest, in terms of photographic classes.
I need a rest.

I should be up in NYC by sunday.

Here are some rolleicord snapshots from around savannah, from last quarter, including some pictures Mike Eason took of me on my camera after I modeled for a project for him.

Carson Cram

Cory Brown

Mike Eason


Joelle and I

Oh, also, the latest issue of CMYK is on stands now! I’ve only got one shot in this one, but another SCAD buddy
Brad Rankin has four shots and the cover! You should definitely check it out, his work is really something. I saw some landscape
stuff outside the photo building today, and I was really impressed. I told him I could never do anything like that.

Time Assignment


Some modified rolleicord double exposures that I made for a class assignment.
I don’t actually like them that much, and will probably not make more.

Bad News Preview


Preview:

Bad News.
Installation, W/Sound.
Images on every wall, ceiling, and floor.
Each Image,
20×24

From my personal ramblings about this project, when fleshing out this idea:

“Room Covered in Prints, dark, dark entrance. Lit through the prints (transparencies?), possibly. Dark, even to the point of losing detail in the hair so it looks like the faces are just coming through the darkness.
Doorframe at opposite end of room, into room of all white, with blinding white lights near the frame, so it glows, very inviting.

The room is supposed to be challenging. The images are supposed to be gritty, not really aesthetically pleasing, harder to look at, yet possibly intriguing at the same time. People whisper their stories of their first moments reacting to horrible news, the sounds overlap and come from all walls, behind every image. It’s almost overwhelming. possibly cathartic, overall

The door at the end is a reminder that although we have horrible things happen in our lives, there is a way out, and we can move on. Literally, it is a choice to put the bad things behind us.

It could also be said to be an escape and allow people to turn away from the tragedies (both minor and major) that surround them.

At the same time, the viewer can stay in the room for as long as they chose, and try to sympathize and understand the pain of others. They can explore the emotion on their faces and try their hardest to hear their individual stories. “

Roadtrip Polaroids


I should have posted these earlier, since they come before those first rolleicord shots, for the most part.
Anyway, here are the first polaroids from my baltimore/NYC/Northampton/whatever trip.

Pen saying goodbye to Molly, who I drove up with for the first half of the trip.


Me eating junk food.

Coley and Stephen.



Rin held the camera after I set it, for this one. thanks budd :D

My sister.
