Film Series – Conjunct Motion
Albuquerque, NM (Gathering) | Diana Mini | Stock Lens | Lomo 800
The movements of color and action draws attention to the arena floor – the dancers, the drum groups, the MC. The goal for this project was to capture the motion of action that is generally not the subject of the viewers and cameras; the action outside the arena.
I had set out to use long exposure to document the movements and to maintain the anonymity of the subjects. Often art documents indigenous people in a stoic and mythical manner as we become tokens or living museum exhibits. I wanted to document the existence while preserving the natural interaction between the people.
(Note: Some dust was left on the scanned images for random aesthetic purposes. Plus, I need to pick up glass cleaner.)
