Go into the gaps

Go into the gaps. If you can find them; they shift and vanish too.
Stalk the gaps. Squeak into a gap in the soil, turn and unlock—more
than a maple—a universe. This is how you spend the afternoon, and
tomorrow morning, and tomorrow afternoon. Spend the afternoon. You
can’t take it with you.

Shooting Emily had been going well and we were finishing up with the last outfit at the last location, right near MOCA in downtown LA when my Mamiya jammed. I shifted the camera, put my cigarette in my mouth and the camera fired, taking the best shot of the day.

I’ll take it.

David Lynch, the Cop, the Cow, the Cow’s Handler, and the Keyboardist

I lived a block away from the old Tower Records on Sunset Blvd where this was taken.

Sometimes the really LA part of LA would collected in some slow moving eddy away from the faster, cleaner currents, curdling and fermenting to the point where shit like this would emerge. It is not a great shot, but I’m still convinced that God made film for moments like these.

The Moving Finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.

The Yangers

Stephanie and Selena are identical twins in San Francisco. When I shot them, we had grand plans for a few locations, several wardrobe changes and a couple of different looks and feels. We had so much fun in their apartment that we never even made it out. I could spend a year shooting them.

Taken with a Leica M6 TTL 0.58, 35 summicron and Mamiya Pro II 67, and Tri-X.
