Monopod City

All over the city I noticed that these new monopods are going up. If you’re into night time photography and not in the mood to carry a tripod well, you’re in luck. In the photo above left I’m handholding my camera…a ah, Canon G10. No amount of stabilization will help this out. But by using the city provided monopods I can use longer shutter speeds and capture much clearer pictures.











…And 3am traffic is brutal…

Living, Breathing, Human Organism?

Contradiction Dance



This last season I have been working with Kelly Mayfield, (Artistic Director, Contradiction Dance (CD)) and the dancers at Contradiction Dance and MASSIVEATTACK to capture some images from their performance of Living, Breathing, Human Organism. A really exciting show which explores how we have lost touch with ourselves and our environment. Let me quote CD…


 


Conceived by Artistic Director Kelly Mayfield, Living, Breathing, Human Organism? explores how we have lost touch. Our preoccupation with our thoughts leads us to detach from both our physical self and that self within the environment. Despite this, our daily lives play out in a menagerie of animalistic tendancies that are telling in both dark and humorous ways.


 


I had a great time at each performance while trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. Not always possible as the guy in the corner where the CLICK…CLICK…CLICKING was coming from. I have put the silent shutter on my wish list. In any event I appreciate everyone tolerating my intrusion. Bravo to all the performers! Well done…
