Yesterday I spent some nice time with Nori Mizukami, who is making a documentary about the Seeing With Photography Collective. Nori agreed to pose for some light paintings. Nori's film is dealing with his own visual problems, due to Lasik eye surgery that went bad .

A magnifying glass lens and a cardboard box are used for our box portraits. A digital camera, focused at the end of the box records the light painting that is used to light our sitters up. Though minimal and very soft, the pictures have interesting subtleties, and gradations of tone that remind me of pastel drawing. Some of us were browsing through our collection of box portraits yesterday at our workshop, so I was inspired to post some of mine here. When grouped together in a gallery exhibition, they present a very striking unity.
