Most of the time people make a photo more interesting and tell the story better. Then there are those few that are just as interesting on its own and tell that story just as well.
Taken in Stamford, CT.
“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.”
You often don’t or can’t see beauty in the world until someone shows it to you. Take a look around you just now – even without moving from the computer. Can you see something in a new way, a different way of presenting something common? Just take a look again…
This is my friend Lexy. This is actually a black and white film print and not photoshopped at all. I used a Polaroid camera to take a photo of her. Then took another Polaroid to take a photo of her holding it, and so on until I took one with my film camera. This was processed by myself in a darkroom.
These are toll booths in Beijing, China. This was taken within the first hour or so of my trip in China. We all just got off the plane and were heading to out hotel, completly exhausted but so excited at the same time.
These are the 2009 fireworks in Westport, CT. We found what I think was the perfect spot to watch then. The boats and the water made the whole show so much prettier. This show was the first one I went to since I was probably 5 years old and so far I think the best.
I call this the $250 photo. This is a hose that someone left on in my back yard and left it to freeze, then unfreeze. That is how that sprayed ice formed. It is called the $250 dollor photo because from the water being in and running ran my mother’s water bill up an extra $250.
This is my friend Nick. We were at Cove Beach, Stamford, CT. It was still winter time and ice was everywhere. We started playing with the sheets of ice and throwing them into the water. As I was taking pictures he held a piece in front of the sun and it made the best silhouette. I think the ice kind of looks like an eagle’s head.
