And His Sidekick

Today was Brief Photo History Ramblings with Jason session one. He’s the (to be) mogul behind Panopticon Gallery that I’m interning with and he’s making a valiant effort at beefing up my meager knowledge of that which is photography. We also shot some footage to be spliced into an “introduction to collecting” clip, and oh it shall be wonderful.

I only realize now that when he was a student, one of his biggest photo projects was based around making portraits of art collectors, which is exactly what I’ve just done to him. He’s relaxed, he’s at home. He’s with his elderly pup and is surrounded by his collection.

And not even the hardiest of hardwoods can remain straight under the extreme forces of wide angle optics.  His one shoe at right is five times the volume of his head. And he collects only slightly warped photographs, placing them into proportionally warped frames.

Enough! On the train home I conjured up a meaty twenty-four things I need to get done in the next week or so. And sleeping isn’t one of them, but that’s exactly where I’m going.
