Figures? Yikes.

Just had my mentor meeting with Hiroshi.  LOTS of things swirling around in my mind about this project now.  New images coming soon, and judging by what we discussed this morning, they’re going to be real weird.  Been investigating the work of John Pfahl and his unique alterations to the idea of space.

“People think the camera steals their soul. Places, I am convinced, are affected in the opposite direction. The more they are photographed (or drawn and painted) the more soul they seem to accumulate.” – John Pfahl

  1. Does that notion seem counter to (was it Benajmin or Walsh?) who suggested that reproduction dilutes the aura. I would think that the more common a location becomes, the more accessible and available, then the aura or mystic of the place dilutes. Thoughts?
