New episode of the Painter Files Podcast

Episode 82 is up, enjoy

Round and round

Film is so stunning and moving. I will never stop understanding the power of developing.

The day of the show

It’s 7 Am and the air is cool. A perfect day for an art show. I’m so happy and lucky to get these chances. Meeting beautiful and amazing souls. I hope to catch up with everyone at the show. Should be fun.

Also as a way not to go insane I took a ton of photos.

“relax Jaws …relax” is the voice in my head.

24 shots

6 of 30 b sides

I never looked at myself so much as I do now in a camera. It feels like looking a fish eye on a cooked fish as it’s pointed at you on a plate.

The drug is my visions of completing this book in a reasonable timeline.

Lucky 24

These really turned out beautiful. If you don’t have a Hulga camera I suggest you get at least an app like HUJI.

My first job ever I was  15. I worked at a theme park taking pictures and developing 1,000 negatives a day. I have always loved cameras as long as I can remember. My mom had a old camera with lots of lens and a rainbow thread shoulder strap. Still to this day i wish she would give it to me. I’m not even sure it would still work but it was just so beautiful.

I remember the day in college I learned I would have to take pictures of my own work. I felt really nervous mainly because I had so many amazing friends who were photographers and I didn’t see my self as one anymore. There was this theory i subscribed to that said “you are only one thing 100% at a time.” Naturally I outgrew that but it took me a while.

I have so many cameras now but my new one is my Holga.

It is a very simple camera but it makes me happy and I figure that is the point.
