the happenstance quadrille

19Nov12

Many of my favorite photographs are the result of accidental openings of the shutter, miscued snappings, bizarrely disfigured exposure times, and unexpected slips in the winding mechanism.  My back catalog is full of mistakes like these, which were especially rampant when my primary camera was a LOMO LC-A.  These photographs are like dreams that have been stumbled upon in the afternoon, or beautiful creatures that have been brought up from the deep: alien and unexpected forms of life.
