The Return

Sorry gang, it's been a while since I've updated. Let's catch up, shall we...?

After I graduated last month I went to Richmond, Virginia to shoot the widespread abandonment of the city's slums. I went because I got an ORCA grant to photograph the city and then hopefully get it published. Here are some photos. I forgot to turn them into sRGBs so they might be more desaturated than I'd like:

These are just digital shots. I shot about half digital and half film. I took a 4x5 (thanks Nicole) and my Brownie box panoramic camera which is currently my favorite camera in the world.

Here's some more:

It was a great time. I spent the days walking around the seedy areas of the city, and at night my sister-in-law Anne and I watched Scrubs and many, many delightfully bad movies.

I've been home from VA for a week now and I've been looking for a job and it's totally lame. I started working with a temp agency and I've worked one job thus far. That job, which entailed moving back-breaking boxes from one room to another all day, was in a place where telemarketers call people at home and try to get them to buy stuff they have absolutely no need for. The whole placed was soaked in caffeine and testosterone and I will never be a salesman for as long as I live.
