The Disposable Collection, or "Anti Tourist" project is coming along! Its been about two years now, shooting these o'l point and shoot cameras. With help from www.lti-lightside.com we have developed 17 of them! It was rad to see all the images, having forgot the majority of what I shot. Its been a one of a kind trip to New York City. I'm just thankful I am able to walk away with so many souvenirs.
-Working hard at finishing this project.

I have been shooting with these little 35mm point and shoot disposable cameras, for about a year an a half now. at this point I have shot 12 of 20 cameras. They are theme and packages for a NYC Tourist, I got my hands on 20 cameras. I held on to them for a year before I even began to shoot, I was stuck at how to approach it.... I have only developed 2 cameras/ rolls, and was so hyped on the results. I don't want to release images until I develop and view them as a whole. there is something enjoyable about the scale of time in this project. It will still be awhile until its all finished, I have not set a date...
