Palliativity 156: Hallowed Hunt

Posted on June 28, 2012

The life of a photographer, like golf, is a nice walk ruined; a person who constantly apologizes for lagging behind.

When I have a camera in my pocket, it's hard to fight the urge to hunt. My intentions are selfish and driven by a gluttonous eye. Most photographers rarely get to enjoy what they see before themselves in the moment. I try to remain engaged with my companions and observant of my surroundings. The compromise: rather than plan ahead for each shot and digest the scenery further, I am only looking for scratch material. Scrap images never have to be perfect.

Click! - I quickly look down at the backscreen and squint under cupped hands, simulacra of catching fireflies in a summer meadow. I smile when I see the framed shot I held my breath and steadied for. I look up and see all of my friends and family down the path looking back expectantly to make sure that I don't get left behind. I stash my camera and pound the pavement to catch up.


Bonus: perform magic-eye maneuver on images above for at glimpse inside my brain…if you dare 😉

Palliativity 155: 8-bit Revolution

Posted on June 21, 2012

Looking back, Videogame culture seems to have always been fused with Internet culture.

The necessity to communicate with limited space, budget and processing power forged a similar yet distinctive style of visuals and sound.

I've always thought that setting limits on the scope or resources of an art project acts as the greatest source for inspiration.

Palliativity 154: immortal

Posted on June 14, 2012

The concept of mortality and the human experience was forever altered when science gave birth to the photograph. For the first time, real visual experiences could be captured by anyone with the technology.

The evolution from cavern walls to treated paper for a taste of eternity.
