critical mass... i came to understand this project a lot better once i was finished. thats not to say that i would redo it, but that while i was shooting, i wasn't sure exactly what i was taking pictures of or why. i did not shoot according to any sort of standard, preconception, or definition. i shot according to what i saw as i moved around town for a couple days. i edited my images down according to which ones caught my eye first, and then which ones seemed to be connected to the others in any way. the connections may be obvious or not; conceptual or visual. in the arrangement of my images in the book, i laid them all out on the floor in my living room, there’s a definite shift from day to night and a subtle shift back to day. the arrangement is semi-chronological, but not entirely. some sort of concept or connection, which not even i can define, drives the variations from the chronological order.
