I have shot a few 4x5s for my final, that I have not had the chance to scan yet. I also processed 2 rolls of 35mm last night and neither had any info on it, so in lieu of having no work to show I stumbled across some work by a Danish photographer by the name of Casper Balslev, that I thought some of the class may be interested in.
Casper took a trip to New Orleans shortly after Hurrican Katrina.
“I felt as though there was already so much coverage of the human stories that I didn’t know how I could contribute to that,” says Balslev. “So I thought it would be good to shoot the city, which was filled with water, on a medium format camera on a tripod, the old fashioned way.”
The pictures offer a stark contrast to the landscape some of us witnessed a few weeks ago, and even to those photos that appeared when it was all over the news.
