Photographer: James Cook  (Karma=38068)
Seattle, WA  

About: I'm a space-alien embryo incubated in a trailor park facility. Soon the mother ship will return to take me home.

Been shooting since my dad taught me to use his 35mm when I was 5. Never worked in photography. Moved gradually to digital.

Mostly I'm a writer. A poet. Trapped in the body of an IT professional.

Portfolio:  Luxagraphia
Portfolio Description: Luxagraphia is a photographic technique I have been developing wherein I use light to draw images. It is a way of drawing with light on the photographic plate (film, CCD, etc.) to produce an image.

Luxagrphia is all about motion. In this respect it can be thought of as Futurist. This motion could be camera or camera and subject motion. In this respect it likens itself to the work of modernist painters such as Marcel Duchamp.

Some of the images will take on the appearance of Impressionist paintings. Others will be much more abstract, perhaps reminiscent of the work of Jackson Pollack.

These images are not retouched in any way. PS use is limited to those steps necessary to load the image to this site: shrinking image dimensions, shrinking file size, perhaps cropping or converting to B&W. I will try to make clear for each image what was done.

There is a fundamental and important difference between what I do when I shoot luxagraphically and to what is called camera-toss. Since camera-tossing is utterly random there is no path to reproducibility. In contrast, I have been evolving techniques for shooting in the luxagraphic style which would allow me (at least theoretically) to reproduce some particular shot. The act of reproducing a photograph may be highly impractical and creating again the exact conditions under which the original shot was made could also be undaunting; however the important matter is that it at least exists as a possibility--as it does in all other photography. Camera-toss is purely wysiwyg with no skill or technique involved. I may take several shots of the same subject, slightly modifying my technique as I do so, in an effort to capture some specific look or feel from that subject. Through my techniques I have discovered ways to evoke certain specific behaviors from particular subjects. And though there is always a random element involved--as there is in all of life--I as the photographer am in the driver's seat encouraging that random element to obey my photographic will.

Your questions and comments are always encouraged.
