I have been taking photos in multiple exposure and HDR modes for at least a year. It’s not only about handing over the results to an algorithm. It was about changing the role of myself as the picture-taker and whomever was on the other end of the lens as the subject. They resist being known (as if an image could know). I free myself from the presumption of knowing. How could I anyway? The speed is recorded. It’s a failure in so many ways, as traditional photographic content, ethnography, and landscape. There’s more but I won’t go on. These are from Ethiopia Jan-Feb 2014.
i just returned from ethiopia. my suitcase was lost. i got through it just fine. i couldn’t shoot but half a left-over roll of film. these are some pictures i took
