passing memory

i used this image the other day as an opener for my presentation on my body of work "nostalgia." there's such a uneasy feeling about this image and it's a timeless photograph. even though this photograph was taken in 2010, it could almost fit any time era of the past century.

working with my holga is great. while i feel a lot of times that it's a "fad" kind of thing for many people, for me, it's what fits my style best. i love crisp, beautiful photographs for my commercial work, but with my art, i'm drawn to the imperfections and "accidents" that come from the holga.

things left unchanged

this house amazed me. whoever lived here before just put layers and layers of wall paper all over the house. my guess is maybe it was used for insulation. we even found receipts (in layers) nailed to the wall dated 1963. my guess is that year was the last time that home was inhabited. 

i'm pretty sure this image will be in my and wesley's upcoming exhibit "create.destroy.create."

quick shop

  i'm still working on the layout. i photographed this the other day on my way home from atlanta. i really loved the textures and patterns in the insulation. and, naturally, i love the hand painted shop name on the building. i need to find my photographs from this spot that i took in 2005ish. time changes everything
