Meditation on the profound impact consumer-grade cameras had on the masses of people who could suddenly capture their lives on film. I took a great history class on popular culture in Canada a few years back, and this lecture always stuck with me. Our notions of time have never been the same!
The camera in this image was a gift from my mother-and there is even still film in it! Tried to capture the kind of light Jan Vermeer painted in his jewel-like images centuries ago in the upper floor of his studio in Delft.
