Captivating images and interesting questions posed. I have not experimented with multiple exposure and this has inspired me to try. The interaction of overlapping images, the recognizable and unrecognizable, the shadows and textures. I also liked the guided pacing of the video -- while still processing one image in my I am pleasantly surprised with the next. Thanks for putting this together.

I look at this as a marvelous tribute to randomness. But it's constructed like a piano etude and thus the suggestion of:
"discover what the camera sees that you don't"
is one way of approaching photography. (actually it happens to be my way also.)
Of all things visible what appears in a photograph is always invisible to the eye and surprises us.

I particularly like the pace of this piece, the moment of questioning the exercise.

One of the best montages I have seen for some time. Quite eloquent and the music is so fitting. Bravo. The thirst for the unknown is a powerful driving force, your location makes it all the more exotic to this concrete semi-bound individual. I couldn't help thinking that your process is similar to shooting film, the pleasure is in the discovery of ones intuition, ingenuity and open mindedness. I like the circular concept, no beginnings - no endings. Just an insatiable craving for going further, the satisfaction of not being sated. Mucho gracias.

Thanks Henry. Just iPhone but I did cheat a bit and use Hipstamatic app because you can do multiple exposures so easily; actually you can do multiple-multiple exposures, as many as you like. And with a bit more trickery you can combine that with slow shutter speeds. Didn't do any post processing at all except to remove borders imposed by some Hipstamatic settings.

Where to beginÖ Brilliant stuff! I feel like Iím someplace between you, the photographer, and your subject. Really there is no camera at all, just this space between.

Itís a very relaxing experience to just let it play out. Iíve gone through it a few times and it doesnít get old. Thatís all I can ask for and you delivered big time. Thanks!

I want to visit longer with each image, but then I can see why taking me through at the speed you did was somewhat intentional. I really do love the music - it adds a richness to the images. Not something I could quite orchestrate if you'll pardon the pun. No idea how you did any of 'em, but that's half the fun, I figure!

Another amazingly beautiful essay from you. This one hits a cord with me. There is nothing I hate more then knowing exactly what my image will look like before I take it. For me, the idea of visualizing and/or setting up a picture before it is taken completely destroys any reason to take the picture. The unexpected surprises that can end up on the sensor are more beautiful than anything a person could plan for. Your exciting photographs give unquestionable support to your essays premise. You have given me some new ideas. Thank you.
