blue star equiculture, massachusetts II
blue star equiculture, massachusetts
shot on 35mm fuji color film.
this weekend me and my two icp friends angie garcia and julia pontes went on a roadtrip to massachusetts to get out of this loud, fast city for a while. we went all the way to springfield, massachusetts! there we visited paul and pam rickenbach-moshimer at their horse farm, blue star equiculture, where they take care of retired work horses. pam and paul were so warm and welcoming and are doing an amazing job with all thirtytwo horses!
it was such an amazing trip and a well-deserved break from school stress and new york city!

the brooklyn room
a roll of ruined negatives
during a very, very intense weeklong workshop with photographer and artist robert blake we got an assignment to split up into pairs and in turn take each other - blindfolded - to our favorite place in new york. i took my friend sakshi, blindfolded, to strand bookstore at union square and had her walk around smelling books she couldn't read. then she led me sixteen blocks, blindfolded, to the east river park, overlooking brooklyn.
while being blindfolded we were instructed to focus our hearing, the way we focus our eyesight. to try and hear what's around you in a one meter wide circle and gradually expanding it. and we were instructed to photograph while blindfolded, using our other senses (primarily hearing and touch) to frame our pictures and set our focus.
these are my images taken while blind at the east river park in new york. i must say, pretty decent for not being able to see anything - while shooting on film with the hasselblad. and changing the film, while blind.

crown heights, brooklyn
for last weeks visual thinking for magazines assignment we got to make an opening image for the article "the storm over salt". Panicking over not having a good salty image on sunday night I went into the darkroom, poured salt crystals on Darkroom RC paper and exposed it. Here's my photogram of salt.
