Grad school update

Hey strangers. Working away at graduate school here at the University of Missouri. Here's some recent work from the past few months of life in Missouri, including my first video I've made since Advanced Color.

Photographing strangers and finding out their stories for an assignment. Hoping to do my own blog post on this soon.

There's gobs more on my blog, if you're interested in looking. I'd like to see what the rest of you are up to. Post updates!

New work from Boston.

Here are a few images from a project I started this winter. These are handheld video stills from both US and Hezbollah foot-soldier footage shot during the Iraq War (2003-2011). I am exploring the implications of conflict imagery democratization (individuals can now record news events no longer mediated by the state), and what it means for our understanding and visualization of war as a culture. It's fascinating and unsettling to see war directly through the lens of it's participants. These are printed very large on thin, high gloss magazine-style paper and evidence of pixels are removed to make them almost look like an Impressionist landscape, only smoother.

The more abstract images are the video frames that error/glitch at the moment the shockwave hits the camera from the detonation.

New from Mizzou

I was tired of seeing my other post, so here are some photos from the True/False Film Festival held here in Columbia, MO last weekend. It's a pretty cool festival screening a bunch of documentary films.

Anyways, pictures:

More updates from Columbia, MO

Here are some photos from some recent shoots here for the Columbia Daily Tribune. I've learned a lot while here. I also included two photos at the bottom from this past fall when I got to shoot football. Thought it was kind of cool that I got to photograph the first player to be openly gay and headed to the NFL (news as of yesterday). Neither of them are great shots, but it's just a cool personal note.
