Multiple exposure generated in ImageJ and Photoshop from a short video. The bird appears white (or in color) in each place where he paused. Image was made from these three layers: 1, 2, 3.

Original video was recorded using a homemade motion-sensing contraption.


Hommage à Étienne-Jules Marey.

E5 is from my digital print series "A garden Alphabetized ( for your viewing pleasure"

An Acknowlegement of Eadweard Muybridge.In the initial images of the series I found myself moved to quote the work of Muybridge, whose pioneering photographic work is credited by many to be the precursor of motion pictures. As I worked with my Nikon Coolpix, I could not help but recall his story, and realize that more than a hundred years later a new photographic technology was again altering the way we perceive and interact with our physical reality.

This is an original photography shot on location with Polaroid 669 film using the Polaroid transfer process on Arches paper.

test images for the series "For Love" from my "Experiments in Reductive Video".


This image is the result of processing amateur pornographic videos from websites built with user submitted content.




Using a custom patch in Max/MSP/Jitter, each frame of video is analyzed with the previous. Each frame is then reduced to only the advancing (or new) pixels. By displaying only the new pixels, the video itself is reduced to only the important elements needed to describe movement.


These images are compilations of all of the pixels displayed in the video analysis.

A stop-motion image of my cat playing. Flash was in stroboscopic mode, 5 flashes in 1 second. (I'm a photojournalism student at the Corcoran College where the Muybridge exhibit is on display.)

I took this photo at a downhill mountain bike race in Kalamazoo, MI six or seven years ago. The camera was a Lomography Oktomat, which is a disposable camera with 8 lenses that takes an image every 0.25 seconds.


My favorite thing about this image is the way that the racer lowers his body while negotiating the roots and then extends his arms as the bike comes off the drop.

The idea behind this image is that time is broken up into increments. The light's movement throughout the day is recorded on the floor.

Corniche al-Mazraa, Beirut, Lebanon - January 21, 2007. Hurling broken concrete projectiles, such as those in this youth's right hand, groups of progovernment youth clashed with young representatives of the Amal and Hezbollah Movements. The Lebanese Army intervened averting major casualties in what noted Middle East writer, Robert Fisk said was close to a rekindling of the 1975-1990 Lebanese Civil War.


Muybridge's work influenced my choices in composing this image.
