for those who have bank, the CANON G10 looks like a dope little camera to have!
I have a G10. When my only other cameras at the moment include 3 medium format, large format, and a Polaroid camera (cheki) it comes in very handy.
Niiiice. What do you do anyways? are you still in school? work?
Still in school, graduate in the spring.
Been in couple group shows in Chicago, nothing self supporting or anything along those lines… Actually working on graduate school applications (fingers crossed). Still working on "The Sneakerheads" (going to be in NY in a week and LA in like 2.5 weeks) but actually pushing more an offshoot project of that called "Anecdotes from a Sneakerhead" that most of the photographs from that are on my flicker but really image/text based work, so it's kinda hard to "get" without the text like it is on my flicker, but I don't really like flicker as a vehicle for my photography/art anyways. And I sort of fancy photography more as a vehicle for my ideas rather than myself a photographer anymore (other than maybe "the sneakerheads" that's very formal portraiture). The image is only so powerful.
But also starting another project too be my first large format body of work that sort of hinges on the recreation of sort of iconic imagery created by "hood" cinema and rap videos in the late 80s to mid 90s. Almost like film stills from like Paid In Full, New Jack City, etc. as well as "classic" rap videos but less built on the performance aspect of the song/rapper and/or the narrative of the film and more on what about that imagery is iconic to the "hood" and how that functions within that culture as construct of it.
Few other things on the plate as well but I don't really like putting all my cards out.
