“Don’t cling to an angle that isn’t in the frame.”

In December of last year, I purchased my first twin lens reflex camera, a Yashica Mat-124g. Through the exploration of my environment with this vintage camera, I discovered that my brain had the capacity to hardwire itself to this mechanical-medium of artistic expression. Unlike a single lens reflex camera, which uses a pentaprism to correct the inversions caused by the lens, a twin lens reflex camera displays an uncorrected image on it’s viewfinder screen. As I began viewing my world through a camera that displays an inverted image, the manner in which I perceived my world as a whole turned inside out.

  1. really nice as always! I need to get you to travel along with me to a competition one weekend so you can get some photos of our team. I bet our sponsors would be interested in seeing some and we would too!
