Caroline recently took my family home movies in video cassette form to Walgreen’s and had them put onto DVD. I decided to look through them a few nights ago and was immediately struck buy the beauty of the images. They were taken by my dad in film form of course. They Started in 1950 at my mom and Dad’s wedding. My mom thinks Tony Forgione was holding the camera. and went through to about the time I was 3 or 4 years old.
I decided to try to select stills to use as potential painting compositions. However when I used print screen the image it captured would at first be intact but when I saved it it would turn to black. Strange. Ultimately I sat in front of the videos on my laptop with my I phone in hand and just clicked away with the camera. I took hundreds of shots. I’m not sure where to go with it all but I think it’s an intriguing beginning of a series of some sort. Here are four that I found interesting.
