So, here’s the back story – in the Spring of 2012, I set off on a trip with someone I didn’t really know – for a 2’ish month long road trip. Traveling the girth of America, we visited (take a breath) San Francisco, Big Sur, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon, Austin Texas, Louisiana, The Florida Keys, Miami, Shark Valley, the Everglades, Charleston, Savannah, South Carolina, North Carolina, Blue Ridge Park Way, Virginia, Washington, Montauk and New York City.
Over the course of this 2 month trip we had 35 disposable cameras on hand. When we finished up? We had 11 left over. AND SO BEGINS THE DISPOSABLE CAMERA PROJECT!
What does all this mean? Here are the dot points, because God only knows I love a good bit of bullets
- (as I said) I had 11 disposable camera’s left from a trip I took across the US.
- I’ve given these away to 11 people I like – from artists, to bloggers, to curators of cool.
- These people are taking photos – of anything and everything they see.
- As I type, the cameras are trickling back, undeveloped.
- Over the next 11 months – I will develop them
- And once a month, pop them up on the blog – for your voyeuristic viewing pleasure.
To start us off – we are going with what you know. Which is me. After the jump (and above as an intro to the team) are a collection of photos Hendrik and I took over the course of our road trip. They begin in Palm Desert’ish (as we didn’t actually have the camera’s until LA) and take us all the way to the bright lights of New York City. It’s all a little bit heart breaking to look at, with firm kicks of nostalgia…but a bit pretty – so I’m surviving.
America, fuck yeah.
