Street Spirit

Even though the streets never change, the element that makes them bristle with life does.

This is what keeps me coming back to this never-ending cinema; what keeps me looking for new scenes to unfold on the stage.

Personal Cinema; Ghostly

I will freely admit that I am deeply inspired of a deep love for Horror, Thriller, Mystery and the Fantastique both in fiction literature and in cinema. From my earliest years I was infatuated with monsters and creatures of the imagination. I would sneak out any chance I could get to catch the Late Night Movie or watch my favorite reporter Karl Kolchak unravel the latest monster mystery that would charge my imagination. I fell in love with writings of Lovecraft , Poe, Matheson, Bradbury, Stoker and from there finding a love for the writing of Stephen King, reading everything that I could get my hands on late into the night with rapt attention to every detail.

Personal Cinema; Sunday Morning

I can remember this day quite clearly. March 9th, 2014, Sunday. And cold. In fact, I was looking out the window debating for an hour whether to go out or not, sipping my hot coffee and not wanting to really put the layers on that would be required to stay warm. Back and forth, looking at the cold outside and knowing that it was going to be a fight to stay warm.

Love of Shadow

I use falling shadows often in my work to help accentuate. Sometimes the frame simply becomes deeper, more meaningful, and nostalgic with the edge of a shadow being central to it.

ANALOG Workshop in Lisbon

Agnieszka surprised me with an Analog Worksop where we not only learn a bit about how to shoot and settings, etc, but that we would actually develop the roll of film that day and leave with the negatives!

Basking in the Sun and Eating far too many Pastel de Nata. Travels in Portugal.

As the title suggests, the days spent in Portugal were filled with amazing sunny scenery and after eating the first bite of the custardy delicious Pastel de Nata it became the immediate go-to, must have, eat as many as I can possibly get my hands on treat. And I did.

In Review; August

From the very first day of August, the month proved to be a big one, filled with mostly warm, sunny days and all kinds of instances where discovering our new home here in Warszawa often meant playing the part of tourist while doing it and we often would voice our disbelief that this was actually our home and not someplace we were visiting.
