I picked up this roll of film today. I had forgotten how much fun I used to have with my old camera. I like the way the subjects change when I shoot film. I seem to focus more on the ordinary than I do when I have my digital camera with me. It should be the other way round, right? The photos are more personal in a way. I look at them and I remember everything I did on the day I took them. Nothing serious, nothing planned. However, I do regret not having my digital camera with me when I saw that rainbow. It was huge and beautiful and the photo did not exactly go according to plan but I’m starting to like the error again and the unexpected so I guess It’s fine.
Threnody: Three Film Stills
Nathaniel Dorsky | 2004 | 25 minutes | silent speed | 18 fps | 16 mm | color | silent
Threnody is a somber but luminous progression through a delicate articulation of earthly phenomena… an offering to a friend who died. It is the second of two devotional songs, the first being The Visitation. These two films were preceeded by a series of Four Cinematic Songs: Triste, Variations, Arbor Vitae, and Love’s Refrain. N. D.
