A few years ago I first began to experiment with intentional camera movement. It gave me a sense of deja vu. The images themselves reminded me of my childhood, twirling and rolling down hills to make myself see the world spinning about me. But the surprise of unexpected and unpredictable results also took me back to my early years as a photographer, when I worked with film. Similar to then, this process makes it hard to repeat a moment in time, that decisive moment now has the added dimension of a sense of movement. This technique has allowed me to change my perspective, relinquish some control, find beauty in uncertainty, and capture a nostalgic sense of abandon. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have in making and sharing them with you.
