Hello Timothy ~
Just thought I might dash off a few first thoughts about the stuff you are putting on your Tumblr Stereoscopy.
I was quite struck by the first ones you posted, the ones of ur kids. There is so much whimsy in them, as well as a slight mind-fuck and some vague reference to photo history and even a few other threads I can’t pin down.
A very interesting continuation of your work with your kids and
about growing up, or something.
When you posted the ones of your dad I thought that they looked too preordained,
stiff. They lacked the overt whimsy of the earlier ones. Seemed, to me, to be the work
of a commercial photographer.
Then today I saw the one of yer mom and, while it still seemed pre-visualized and
sort of static (like the ones of your dad) there was some echoing in it of the ones of
The kid ones look organic, like you weren’t even trying. The parent ones look like
you were (trying).
It’s just a feeling.
Now, could be that that’s what you want to do, to show the difference between the young
and the old. Or it could be that these reflect, somehow, your relationships with the
folks you are picturing. But it’s probably a combo of both those things and a hundred
other things as well.
As usual, I’ll leave the nuance to you. Like I said (and as typical) these are just
hammered out before dinner (damn, I’d better get the rice on) thoughts.
One way or the other, though, I’m digging who you are and what you’re in to.
