Have you ever thought of/ done any video editing? I think your sense of flow and continuity, with your eye for an awesome image, would result in some powerful profile clips.

Have a look at what Philip Bloom has done - vimeo.com/philipbloom. Some of his stuff so captures the 'feel' of a place!
I'm trying to get the time, energy and skill to do that kind of stuff!

Just watched Bloom's Portrait of a Boxer. Great, great video!
Strong Scorsese/Schoonmaker style editing there - coupled with the Raging Bull-esque black and white; gorgeous! 
Thanks for sharing.

Watch the behind the scenes as well, to see how he lit and shot it. The man is a generous genius, sharing techniques and material on his various web sites. I find him quite inspiring. His 4 videos shot in South Africa (Tracker and Banker, Projectionist, Ponte and seawater drinkers) captured something so essentially South African, in 3 minutes. I went out and bought a camera that could do video, and started learning how to do it!

Definitely gonna keep an eye on him for sure.
Say, have you uploaded any of your videos? I'd love to take a look.

It's like a series of stills from Powaqqatsi www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNVTmW… . I've already favoured one image and now I want to favour the whole thing.

Godfrey Reggio's 'Qatsi trilogy', and Ron Fricke's 'Baraka' and it's sequel 'Samsara' are nothing short of cinematic masterpieces!
I'm beyond honored to have this humble journal remind you of those amazing gems.
Thank you kindly!

That is quite possibly the best quote yet. Forget the others about war, religion, death and suffering, this is the quote that should be printed and stuck to subway walls and street signs. And the photos... Powerful statements, each and every one of them. Essays in each pixel and chapters in each shadow. Thank you so much for this.

mmmmmmmmm ice cream is worth the distraction, and gives you a sugar high which makes you love the humans who create ice cream! :la:  Until you get diabetes or something.
