CARBON MIGRATIONS

 

In Transit – FTE to BRC (El Calafate to Bariloche – Patagonia Argentina) – 2006ARMCHAIR IN THE SKYI’ve always been enthralled by the everyday surrealism of modern air travel. Rummaging through a box of old photos, I was drawn to a vernacular image from the earliest days of commercial aviation. The window view featured a propeller and wing, an evocative mass of obsolete machinery juxtaposed against a timeless expanse of clouds. Captured opportunistically over 25 years of travel, Armchair in the Sky is an extension of my landscape practice exploring our ongoing relationship with the environment.

I'm traveling to the SERENGETI this weekend to join 'Spacetime' photographer Jay Mark Johnson on a project to document the Great Migration across the Maasai Mara.

Seeing wildebeests, great cats and crocodiles will be breathtaking, no doubt, but I'm particularly intrigued to witness JMJ's 'collapsed timeline' process which creates space-time images unlike any you are likely to have seen. The fixed-position, slit-scan camera registers continuous vertical slivers of a scene, recording vast landscapes over a period of time. Collaborators include writer Shana Nys Dambrot and videographer Broatch Berry, with editor Beth Gallagher assembling our output back home. Check out the facebook page for daily posts, sneak peaks, and exotic updates on our progress.

I'll of course be documenting the people and landscapes we encounter along the way. If you're interested in what an editorial photographer might pack for a 10-day assignment to Africa, check out what I took to Equatorial Guinea in December 2011, along with some never-seen photos from the trip...

Vickie and Paul - Thank you for your interest and support! Just now seeing your comments, but think my notifications are set properly to see future comments in a timely manner.

Vickie - Wish I'd responded sooner - a pair of Alpen binoculars would have been amazing in Kenya. Look forward to seeing you at the OWAC conference this month in Big Bear! www.alpenoutdoor.com
