tread. boy

tread. boy. "...I love using old Diana-type cameras and Holgas. Unruly, unpredictable, and so far from perfect. Could there be a better tool to photograph youth as it fades? Hell, the cameras are best when they do their worst. Vignetting, blurring, and slipshod framing. The results require that I remember the moment even better that it was in many instances. There’s so many half-truths contained in the images that the narrative becomes the viewer’s as much as mine. To the kids, these shots don’t really even make sense. They are so accustomed to the instant gratification of digital cameras that by the time they see themselves or their friends or these objects of theirs, they hardly recall the whens and wheres of it all — but I bet someday they might. I guess that is what I am trying for anyway." More... Works by tread at his personal site.
