Portfolio 2 was all shot in the camera, double exposing images with either film or digital cameras. 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 way to critique 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 enjoyed the photographic street expression and the somewhat random Dadaist results.
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 where I double exposed people onto magazine advertisements much in the same fashion I was photographing advertisements on the street.
