camera tests: yaddo summer, 2019
short, 6:28 minutes
During a creative residency at Yaddo in upstate NY I made a series of tests with a new camera right outside my studio.
After several days of shooting, I realized I had captured a kind of composite day at Yaddo – observing nature just beyond my studio door – the misty early morning light – an afternoon standoff between a hawk and a woodchuck – the wanderings of a lone deer – a sudden thunderstorm – into blue evening and a dark firefly filled forest echoing with chattering frogs.
