All photos were taken using the Polaroid OneStep 600 (given to me by photominimal.) and expired films (2005/2007).

*I’ve just noticed the dog hair on every scan. Sorry. The future may hold a re-do but, eh…probably not.

From his blog:

Collaboration is everything. These gorgeous photographs are the result of a very sincere collaboration between myself and the model, Miss Long. But they are also the result of a collaboration between location and medium, light and shadow, gesture and composition. They are also, I think, a wonderful balance between what is seen, and what is not. And it is this aspect that I wish to cultivate more thoughtfully in my work. This will be m … Read More

Stay Hungry (Dir. Bob Rafelson, USA, 1976) – 35mm – Belcourt Theatre: Visions of the South + 2nd viewing on DVD

My absolute favorite of the month. I love Jeff Bridges anyway and watching this film, I was really stricken by the resemblance (both family and character) between this Jeff and brother Beau in Hal Ashby’s The Landlord (1970). Both are great explorations of class integration and problems of the times. Stay Hungry uses a lot of humor (particularly, a tense moment broken by a gaggle of muscle men running around and flexing in downtown Birmingham traffic) and it’s the first time I’ve ever thought Arnold Schwartzenegger was cute. He’s actually a really great actor! Oh, and Sally Field…sigh. Very well cast.

Born to Kill <<Cockfighter>> (Dir. Monte Hellman, USA, 1974) – 35mm – Belcourt Theatre: Visions of the South

Poetry <<Shi>> (Dir. Chang-Dong Lee, Korea, 2010) – 35mm – Belcourt Theatre

Really good. Wanted to see this at Telluride last year but didn’t get the chance.

Better Than Something: Jay Reatard (Dirs Alex Hammond and Ian Marciewicz, USA, 2010) – digital projection – Nashville Film Festival at Regal Green Hills

Música Campesina <<Country Music>> (Dir. Alberto Fuguet, USA/Chile, 2011) – digital projection – Nashville Film Festival at Regal Green Hills

I’m in this movie! This was the American Premiere and my first viewing and I was pleasantly surprised both with the film in general and by my performance. I had been sweating that scene for a whole year and as it turns out, I did fine (if I do say so myself). You can read more in earlier posts: Goodness. and Musica Campesina

The Sleeping Beauty <<La belle endormie>> (Dir. Catherine Breillot, France, 2010) – digital projection – Nashville Film Festival at Regal Green Hills

Jess + Moss (Dir. Clay Jeter, USA, 2011) – Nashville Film Festival at Regal Green Hills

My favorite of the fest. Shot entirely on expired film stock. Really beautiful.
