Learning to Let Go: Lesson 2 (from “Good Luck with the Sun” series)
This image is an exposure made before, during, and after Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. I had no idea that the storm was going to hit when I placed these cameras outside for my project. As a result of the storm, water got into the chambers of the cameras and mud and goo impacted, or in some cases, destroyed, the paper negative. It’s fair to say that Houston was unlucky to get hit by this Hurricane, but it happened. I went through it, the city went through it, and to me, these images are a unique recording of that experience.
