The Fifth Line of the Film Strip
Family reunions can be crazy. One of my favorite things to do is sit back and watch. For this project, I wanted to tell the story of watching the progression of a family reunion from the view of a refreshing glass of milk. The glass is the main focus, while the story is told in the background.
The project is 36 photographs, just like a roll of film.
I made a choice to keep my photographs warm and slightly out of focus, as I feel that this is the style of photographs that fills my childhood scrapbooks.
This was a fun project that I shot many times as I wanted to make sure I got the flow of the subject, the lighting, and the placement of the glass just right.
In this fifth part a plastic bag gets stuck on someone’s head, a trade in hats begins, and the glass is almost empty.
