      i think it’s also valuable to note although this is a short film about visuals and photography the audio bites are amazing and in tune with the imagery. i was distracted by something and stepped away from watching momentarily but even in the next room i was being entertained by what i was hearing.

  • I feel so charged now. Thank you so much for sharing this one.

    • ya it somehow feels more like a photo than it does a film

  • lovely!! thanks for sharing!!

  • An interesting short film. I’m new to the art scene and appreciated the exposure to photographers that were previously unknown to me.

    I can’t help feeling it lacks context but as a visual thing very satisfying. More personal than constructive but thats what photography is like. It leaves you asking more questions than it answer which is a sign of a great photograph.
