Artist Statement:

As a young boy I had a dream of running away and joining the Circus. That dream faded away. . .

I wanted to create a photo that was reminiscent of my childhood dream that had been lost so many years ago. I needed to keep the process simple and easy, so I decided to use my iPhone to create the photograph. I found that the lens was not wide enough to capture the image that I had in mind. I turned to the Auto Stitch program and with three photos; I was able to create the photograph I had been dreaming of. Next, I used the TiltShift Generator to give it a dreamy quality by defocusing most of the image. For the final touch, I added a frame around the photograph using Photoshop Mobile, giving it a feeling of an old Polaroid photo from the past.

The photograph is a Lambda C-print on Kodak Endura paper for archival purposes. The photo will be here long after the dream is gone.

Low Tech will be showing at the Center for Fine Art Photography through the month of October.
