Looking for Magic

Photography has historically been thought of as a mechanical imprint of the visual world — a record of what was in a particular moment in time.  But, sometimes the camera doesn’t just record, it transforms.  It creates a world beyond what we see with our eyes.

Lately, we’ve been in the midst of some drab, gray spring days.  But the rain that drains saturation from daytime makes the city streets luminescent at night.  Ultimately, photography (like the weather!) is subject to our vision, and here at Team Elledge we’re looking for magic.

 

Rockabilly Royalty

Team Elledge got some exciting news this week when the studio learned that one of Paul’s images was chosen as a winner in the 2016 Communication Arts Photography Annual.  Paul feels honored that they chose his image that promotes the documentary “Joe Clay – Rockabilly Royalty.”

Despite playing on the Ed Sullivan show and appearing with Elvis, Joe Clay’s star dropped out of sight just as fast as it rose. He was discovered years later and now, at 78 years old, he is touring the world. Team Elledge has been going along for the ride and looks forward to making new Joe Clay images in the future!

It’s spring! Here’s a look at the season we just left behind…

We move quickly in the winter – power walking to avoid the wind’s bite and fantasizing about the languid summer. But every once and a while a day in January or February gives the whole city pause.

The subways shut down. We “work from home.” The grocery stores run out of kale instead of canned goods, because it isn’t a real disaster – everything will be back to normal again tomorrow or the next day.

Team Elledge ended up in Brooklyn on one of these days last year, grounded at Laguardia at a second-rate airport hotel (rooms go fast on snow days!). But the thing about being stuck is that it gives you the chance to look around. For us, that’s through a lens. Here’s a little bit of what we saw when the weather made us change our pace and stay put for 24 hours.
