Focal Length:50mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark II


Interview, wedding edits, Powaqqatsi, blood letting (into sterile bags) (blood recycling?), the works. But no actual photo creation to speak of. I’ll find some way to snap some off before slumber.

An image here culled from the archives. A digital summons of self. A page torn from some contextless book of personal history, conveying relative age, hairstyle preference, and less than stellar Photoshop skills (to the trained eye).

It’s very much what I’d like to be making for others, or of others. Last time I checked, there’s a lot of folk out there with a pulse. Does pulse equate to potential? The presence of internal pressurized systems as prerequisite to portrait photography? Sounds like a big market.

To blurred noses and ears.
