"One year and three-hundred sixty-four days": This is the beginning of an ongoing series of couples. The title refers to the length of the relationship. I’m interested in the way two people connect; the way their eyes meet, the way their postures and other physical similarities start to imitate one another. The person not being photographed was sitting next to the camera lens and I was off hidden behind the lighting fixture, to make the two feel as relaxed as possible. Like I said, it’s just the beginning of something I’m interested in making a long term project. That said, I would love to photograph and include you and your partner in this series! (Shot with a 4x5 toyo field camera and Ilford Harry Potter 5.)

Ellen and I took a weekend holiday to visit the south shore in Nova Scotia. When I was younger, I used to hang out with friends on the beaches at night in Westerly, RI. This made me nostalgic for those days.. before college, work, bills- all of those grown up things that I ended up trading my youth in for. If you can look closely, there are two shooting stars in each of the first two images.

Batman (:The Animated Series)! The opening sequence to the show is one of the coolest things I had ever seen as a kid. I thought the soundtrack especially was a perfect match for the art direction. Hey, did I ever tell you about liking Batman a whole lot?

Made this paper cutout to print some cyanotype photograms today. It’s a still from the original opening to Batman: The Animated Series- which is perhaps the coolest intro to anything ever. Oh and I finally got 100% in Arkham City! Those last few Riddler campaign challenges were super tough and took me forever. Woot woot!

Pinholing! I made a two pinhole cameras over the weekend. The first three images are with an 8x10 and the other two are from a… 3x5? I had my grandfather’s old land camera sitting on my shelf for years so I thought it would be nice to finally use it for something constructive.

Hubert! Hey everyone, here is some new work that my brother and I worked on over the past few weeks. It’s a narrative piece that’s also the introduction to a story I’m writing about a little guy named Hubert who goes on a search for why he grew up without a father. It’s still a long ways away from finished but I wanted to share what I’ve been so busy on recently. Also a big thank you to Nathan Perry for painting/designing the faux-princess in the third frame! To talk a little bit about the process- I came up with some thumbnails of compositions which I sent to Mike, and he painted the figures and/or backdrops then sent them back to me which I printed and cut out or turned into silhouettes then built and photographed the scenes. For the most part, they aren’t manipulated with the exception of some color correction for continuity.

Halifax. Someone sells bikes near my place by strapping them to a phone pole with a wet piece of paper for their contact information. I guess if i want it I’ll just yell in the streets until they come a runnin. Anyways, I have a lot of new paper cut out work to show everyone next week! Follow me on twitter @DavidReevesArt for more frequent updates and some random/on purpose photos. Cheers.
