San Francisco (iPhoneographic Series)

One of my favorite cites is San Francisco. It reminds me of the stories that have been relayed to me by old timers coupled with songs from the sixties. The intelligent movement of the city inspires me and I am thus compelled into action. Spawned by that feeling, I wrote a song in San Francisco. However, I also took some photographs. What you’re about to see was the result of such compelling action…

“When we define the Photograph as a motionless image, this does not mean only that the figures it represents do not move; it means that they do not (i) emerge (i), do not (i) leave (i): they are anesthetized and fastened down, like butterflies.” – Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

  1. Good work Blake. Beautiful and minimal. As my own work is shot out and about using a Sony Cybershot and I don’t yet have a smart phone I am waiting to see how the new iPhone5 looks after it’s release this coming Wednesday before I catch up with the 21st century! Your work demonstrates the possibilities.
