Everything New is Old Again or
Point, Point, POINT and Shoot

This project was an exercise in restriction, in six-handed photography, in seeing the analog through the digital and—oh yes—vice versa.  All photographs were taken with a Canon SD 600 digital Elph through the viewfinder of a Kodak Brownie Starflex, linked with a light-reducing cardboard tube.  This is convenience photography turned on its head, as subjects have to be static or extremely patient, making one feel something like an itinerant portraitist visiting gold rush camps in the 1870s.  With the addition of the trappings of photography's past, ordinary objects become imbued with a significance (false? you decide) and timelessness.  A daily walk around the city, a freak snowstorm, an abandoned building are made instantly historic.  And all that travelling before they reached your eyes.
