September 1st Thursday

Two great shows happening in our lobby on Thursday evening. 

The 1 Millimeter Project by Chris Hornbecker313mm
1. Shoot a new photo every day.
2. Each day increase the focal length one millimeter.
3. Retouch and post this new image before going to sleep.
4. No cheating.

What’s your favorite lens?  What do you like about it?  It’s all about perspective. Which lens makes things feel more romantic, intimate, dreamlike, or distorted? With so many preferences on which lenses are the best, I chose to explore each focal length and experience the subtle differences and characteristics. For this project I would use each focal length, complete one each day, and repeat for 387 days in a row (14mm through 400mm, the range of lenses in 1mm increments).  This would give me the opportunity to see in a different perspective every day. These are seemingly normal things that wouldn’t garner a second look. However, with the right lens and lighting, show that everything has an interesting story to tell. - Chris Hornbecker





Waterfall A torrential Love Story by Luvers™ 

Waterfall 
UrbanIntimacy
Countless years ago, the dark, ruthless waterfall hunter and broken superhero Black Diamond fell in love with one of his lovely prey, the tender-hearted waterfall known as Jonya Foss. The exact details of their unusual affair is unknown but we are fortunate to have these mystical fragments Black Diamond left behind  - including cryptic drawings, photographs, love letters and home video footage – that merely hint at the length, beauty and tragedy of their story. These fragments were discovered by the Waterfall-nurters and historians known as Lovers©, who came across the artifacts near the now-dry beds of Jonya Foss. The Luvers© have assembled an archive to try to make sense of the broken narrative that was left behind. They are calling upon you dear viewers to help unravel this awkward & enchanting love story.

One thought on “September 1st Thursday

    Back when I had the time to fiddle with cameras at work, I fell in love with Canon’s 85mm f1.2. It’s a little long for most subjects, but the detail is phenomenal.
