To see current photography (2006+), explore the Photography category from the home page. These posts contain at least 3 images and often many more.
The photographs in this archive—dubbed "archimago," the architect of images—reflect not just the time and place and my headspace more often than not stuck in a speaker, but the halcyon heydays of html, thumbnails to nowhere and digital photography before cameras were produced at their point-and-shoot most powerful. Or maybe I just didn't know how to take pictures. Or maybe I took bad ones on purpose. Everything's true once and/or eventually. Sometimes, I hide things.
I have no formal training and pretend no pretensions by saying I'm no photographer, just interested in images. I am also fascinated by the digital medium. Unlike careful film
shots fearing waste, digital imaging is cheaply a million times reproducible and utterly throwaway. As with traditional photography, movement, light and subject matter are considered and explored, but it's also about excess and recklessness and occasionally getting lucky then being cautious about what you call intentional. The technology isn't doing
all the work, but it does allow for such a headlong, no-prisoner technique. Interesting things happen when not every potential screw-up factor is stressed over and eliminated. It's
also instant: you can pause on the moment while the moment's still happening or erase forever from digital memory what's still right in front of you.
This archive is essentially dead; the current photography I share is integrated in the text of narratives. These albums nonetheless comprise an important part of deepsicks, with
a hunnert million links of accountability come-see-me still caught, still embedded throughout the site and the web at large. Though I am now erm well discriminate in photo selection
and take appropriate, unashamed liberties with photo manipulation (contrast and color correction, for instance), traditionally I eschewed any technological enhancement. With the
exception of resizing and the occasional cropping, none of the photos in these collections have been altered after exiting the camera.
Photos from 2003-2005 were captured with a Sony DSC-P32. From 2006 to the summer of '08 I played with a Canon PowerShot S70 and typically Photoshop for correction. Since the S70 bit the dust, I've been using a Canon PowerShot A720.
