Long Overdue Film

I haven’t been doing such a great job of keeping this place updated lately. Graduate school has kept me busy that is for sure. But I am in a blogging mood tonight and decided to share some images with you all (some long overdue ones). I also have plans for a few more posts that I will hopefully be able to get to in the coming days to update you all on how my graduate work is coming.

This post, however, is all about film. I recently got some rolls developed, some of which I had forgotten about since shooting them years ago. The first set, was from a trip to North Carolina that I shot with some very expired film. If I remember correctly the expiration date was the year I was born (1989), so that is why the grain is so intense on these images. They were shot on a 35mm Holga camera.

The first and last are from two separate trips to Colorado, and the middle ones are from two different adventures outside of Manhattan, KS.

Abandoned

Almost a month ago now I went exploring to find this abandoned house that a student of mine had told me about. I wasn’t able to get inside unfortunately, though I may try again at some point.

366/366 – The End

*Saturday, February 2
Saturday I went with the Potters Guild and their visiting artist to Dwight, Kansas. They were doing a cup drop (which you can read about here) and I tagged along to document things. It was such a cool experience, and I fell in love with some of the buildings in Dwight.

And with that, I am done with my 366. I maybe should have a more epic, exciting image to end my 366 with, but it just kind of happened. I am extremely relieved to be done with this project. Now I can focus entirely on my grad work and other misc. series I have wanted to start up. I will still be posting here, though probably not nearly as often.

186/366

*Tuesday, July 10
This car is parked next to my sister’s house, and I have wanted to shoot a polaroid of it for a while. Unfortunately I couldn’t get back far enough to get the whole car until later that evening, when it was too dark, so I may have to try again another day.

20/366 – The Shack

I went for a walk with my brother today in search of something for my 366, and stumbled on this shack pretty quick. This is a stitch of 10 (I think) images, which is partly why I am so late in uploading it. My laptop is certainly not the most powerful of machines, so stitches take a bit of time.

On top of finding this cool little place, I found quite a few other locations for some self-portraits, and thought of a few more ideas for some as well. Now if we could just get some bearable temperatures.
