‘pho∙to∙gra∙phy’ (etymology of): from photos (ϕοτοσ), light, and graphos (γραοσ), writing, delineation, or painting.
I love pushing the limits of relatively uncomplex consumer cameras, repurposing their pre-programmed photo modes for unintended and beautiful consequences of imagery. Here, “Starry Night” mode on the Panasonic Lumix TS-1 becomes more Mark Rothko painting than photograph as a 15-second exposure soaks in colors and attempts to white balance. See more this Friday at Roundscapes, 14th & O in the Parrish Building, where I’ll be showing along with Jason Ortiz.
