Advent series: INRI

Big J, hangin' out. With a very, very tiny old man. Also known as a "homunculus"! I love that I just got to use that word.

What are you waiting for Detroit? You've got nothing to lose, let's make this happen.

dino mountain

This is my first-ever photo shoot, taken around the time I first saw Dino-Riders, at age 6 or so. And now I'm a photographer. Which I think means I owe this all to the sublime genius that is Dino-Riders. Which is awesome.

record shelf

Another creation by my dad. This time it's his record collection.

reaching wooden hand

My dad carved the sculpture. I printed this on a 4"x6" photo postcard, meaning it's regular b&w photo paper, but the back looks like this.

Alfred #3: older & almost gone

Poor Alfred. The world is unkind, and so are mildew stains.

Alfred #2: old & tired

Alfred in later years. Not looking too spry.

Again, I mainly just fixed the brightness and contrast on this photo digitally, because the time this print spent in the bathroom really took its toll. As I imagine was the case with Alfred himself.

Alfred #1: young & strong

One of several photos of this man -- who I'm arbitrarily going to call Alfred, because he just looks like an Alfred -- that I found while archiving the contents of musty old boxes at a temp job. After four years tacked to my bathroom wall (why not?), I scanned it and retouched it slightly.

Mike Gallagher from Isis, at the Middle East Upstairs. I think this was in 2002.

Advent series: wound

This is one of a series of photo-collages I did a while back. They combine photos of books of Renaissance paintings with various religious text.

hall of mirrors

The outside of this hall of mirrors had a huge sign that said "Mardi Gras", and was covered with festive scenes from said Gras. When you walked up, a carny (anyone who works at a carnival can be called a carny. They don't have to be wee) handed you a string of beads to wear. Inside, you navigated through the decorationless mirrors to a dingy stairwell. Once upstairs, you walked across a plain steel platform that had four of those wavy funhouse mirrors bolted to the rear wall. Next to one of them, there was a button. When you pressed the button, a shrill witch cackle rang out through a speaker above you. At the end of this bland white walkway was a purple twisty slide. This was the only way to exit "Mardi Gras". Because of this experience, I will never go to New Orleans.

One of my four prints from The Mansion Show 2009.

This is two negatives stacked together. One is the portrait, and on top of that is a completely black negative that I scratched up. The face is peering through the scratch mask, and all the white space is the remaining emulsion.

oceanside trail

Atop the Hellcat Observation Tower on Plum Island. I didn't see any Hellcats at all. What a ripoff.

I hope your 4th of July was as Vegas-y as mine was.

Popcorn is my favorite flavor of cotton candy.

M&M telephone

Christopher L. Mullins slept here. And almost died here, come to think of it.

One night while he was sleeping, some stitches from recent dental surgery came loose and he almost drowned in his own life-juice. Luckily, once awake, he was able to run to the sink and empty the blood ocean from his face.
BLOOD OCEAN. He kindly took a picture of the result and gave me a 4x6 glossy. Cross your fingers that I never find it, because I WILL scan it and I WILL post it here.

UPDATE: It's the future now, and I posted it.

the glory

At last, the day has come to post this majestic photo. It was originally even more majestic than this, as a noble and handsome eagle actually swooped through the frame as I took the picture, clutching a bundle of arrows in one set of talons, and a George Foreman grill in the other. I photoshopped it out though, because I try not to be a showoff.

chair room

I like it when drawers and shelves are built into the wall. Way to go, Shakers.

Ela & Chris

An electrifying performance was tarnished by the fact that they were doing "What I Got" by Sublime.
