I have never met William Lamson but I feel like we would really get along. He takes pictures and makes wonderful little videos, and really seems to enjoy what he does. He has had solo exhibitions all over the world and currently resides in NY. What I like about his work is that there is as much humor to it as there is beauty. Some of them made me laugh and others were surreal to the point they became almost meditative. William was kind enough to upload a few of them to youtube just so I could post about them!
This first video is called Tundra. There is something really beautiful about this piece. It’s so quiet and simple. It’s like haiku poetry for your eyes.
I notice a real sense of melancholy to a lot of his work as well. In the William Tell piece especially. A heroic success without any witnesses.
Poke your nose around his portfolio, I bet you end up there for awhile. He has some really great photo work as well as many other videos not on youtube.
This one is one of my favourites:
