This film has been sitting in the camera for almost 5 years . . . i finally got it developed today and found mostly light leaks and shaky accidents. Although none of the subjects are clear, the shots turned into happy accidents resulting in something between a ghostly encounter and a hazy daydream. Particularly the first composition . . .
A saturday morning walk from brooklyn to chinatown . . . funny how I arrive in New York and go straight to Chinatown. It was comforting, I was even tempted to haggle on my purchases but i caught myself and paid the asking price.
I found this book at an outdoor market in Barcelona in 2007. Copyright 1984, all drawings by Aurora Altisent.
I used these photographs about 6 years ago for a mock-up book on hunting. I wasn’t able to take the originals out of the library in order to scan them so i could only use the photocopier. This high contrast effect make the images of the hunters even more intense. The name of the photographer is nowhere to be found on any of these old copies, but i intend to find it and properly credit . . .
Chatuchak market or JJ market is always oppressively hot and usually cramped with people, but challenges aside it is still one of my favorite spots in Bangkok. I had never been to the used books section in the far back corner of this HUGE market, but once I got there I knew I would be leaving with pile of paperbacks in my bag. Above are some my favorites out of everything I picked up. The last time I was there was late March of this year, a few weeks before the red shirts descended on the capital and decided to stay for over a month.
