Portfolio 2 was all shot in the camera, double exposing images onto either Silverbased or pixelbased readers . One day I photographed an advertising poster and double exposed it with a pedestrian walking by. Here were pedestrians I was superimposing onto advertising images the ads themselves were trying to target as a means to critque urban imagery which led to this series. The people photographed were not aware of their participation in these photographs in much the same way they’re never really aware of all the consumer laden imagery surrounding them. Although there is some precision in the shooting, there still is a considerable amount of randomness.
Once I select an ad, I hover around taking many different shots. Editing the image's tonality and applying a little cropping resulted in the pictures here. I enjoy the photographic street expression and the somewhat random Dadaist results. I was so enthralled with shooting the NYCads, that after becoming disabled and not able to walk the streets of the city, I came up with a way of continuing this critique by photographing MAGAZINE ADS and double exposing people around me into the ads. I would go to cafes and diners, sit, open to a magazine ad and double expose a customer sitting near me onto the ad in the magazine. I was pleased that I could continue critiquing urban consumer images to magazine consumer images.
