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.
“Moths”- This is a little series I did for a class. The nature of project dealt with the relationship between what is private and public. While walking the streets of Halifax I had noticed myself looking into windows as I passed them, getting these small glimpses of people’s private life. The thought occurred during the moment and not before- there was no premeditation that I wanted to be a weirdo looking into someone’s private residence. But I think it’s interesting that we are unable to help it, like moths to flame. The “flame” is being caught, I suppose. As for the shots being premeditated, I simply walked with my camera/tripod until I saw something that clicked in my brain- then photographed it and moved on. I only took 2-3 of one frame then kept walking… mostly because it was like 0 degrees (F) outside and windy as a mauf. I think my fingers almost fell off. Your rights as a photographer vary depending on your location. In Nova Scotia, I learned, one is allowed to photograph whatever they wish, so long as they (the photographer) are on a public space. These photos were all taken from the sidewalk.
thief! again! I took the paper figure out on my patio today and tried incorporating a real background. halifax being one of the windiest places I’ve ever been in didn’t make it very easy. i had to tape the whole length of a metal ruler against the back of piece and reinforce it to the wall to get it to stay still enough for the shot.
Well, it sure is fall in Canada. This is a four shot pan of Halifax and the bridge over to Dartmouth I took earlier.
