Entre chien et loup

Stairs by the Seine (2014)

I recently spent a few weeks in Europe, taking both digital and analog cameras with me.  It’s not the first time I’ve traveled with both, but the first time I really was aware of my approach to using either one.  With digital I found myself very stream of consciousness – shooting without necessarily thinking.  When…

Social media often gets a bad rap as a necessary evil, but thanks – specifically to Twitter – I have discovered a global film photography community I couldn’t have engaged with otherwise.  Not sure how I stumbled upon this group of film fanatics, the Film Shooters Collective, but between Tumblr and FB we came together…

My love for instant film continues into the summer, especially since I purchased my own Polaroid Spectra SE.  Longer days and warmer temperatures seem to be the perfect fit for polaroid. Camera: Polaroid Spectra Pro/Polaroid Spectra SE  Film: Color – Impossible PZ680

Shadows - Ballard

Maybe it has something to do with more light and warmer temperatures, but this is the second spring in a row where I’ve felt compelled to play with a Polaroid camera. Last year I finally broke out the Polaroid back for my Mamiya.  This year I’ve had a friend’s Spectra Pro to play with after…

art is my weapon

In June I visited NYC to hang out with friends, see the fantastic Cindy Sherman show at MOMA, the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ at the Met and Weegee at the International Center of Photography, visit The Impossible Project gallery and generally wander the streets with my camera.  The beauty of New York is I…

Irish Cows

I discovered today that one of my photos received an ‘Honorable Mention’ at the Prix de la Photographie, Paris (PX3) ‘Altered Images’ competition.  Once again, I’m fascinated by what image the judges chose.  The joy/pain of a jury show is the selection process can be so subjective. Cows are such patient photography subjects.  These lovely…
