This photo/frame series is from an design exercise asking us to document an item of meaning in an unusual way.

This Pentax camera was the first camera my pops bought when he came to america. The pictures were actually taken when I first moved out on my own and took the camera with me. While at the Circus I rediscovered the camera with the film and got it developed. The concept is based on the idea that cameras are built to capture light, but their shell still casts a shadow, just like humans. So I used the shadows shape to create a series of frames to hold the pictures of my past. I took a picture of the camera casting a shadow and then traced that shadow with tape, ink, string, and other writing materials and then used those tracings to frame the found photos.
