Last night I shot the first images of a new project I'm working on.

The premise for the project is basically this: I use a photo that I took when I was approximately one or two years old, and recreate the composition and lighting entirely in the studio.

This is more of an experiment - I'm not quite sure what I'm trying to achieve with these images yet. I can't tell if I'm doing this to examine my 2 year old psyche in relation to how I photograph, or if this is going to transform into an examination of human relationships that I photographed then versus now.

I have the next month and a half to figure this out - We'll see how this goes.

late night fluorescents

Hey, Hi, Hey
Really diggin' the quality of florescent lights in my kitchen at night. These are some preliminary test shots for a possible series of photos. Probably not self-portraits, but definitely some human presence. I'm thinking maybe some nudiness - who doesn't go out to the kitchen for a glass of water neckked in the middle of the night sometimes??
