Exposure № 074: Parkinson’s Photography II

Photographer Dennis Smith shares with us some more of his his Parkinson’s Photography (or “what you get when you can’t hold your camera steady”).

Northern Lights:

This photo was taken late at night at the Canberra, Australia airport. It is a shot of the landing lights on the main runway. I just gently moved my camera in an arc from top to bottom to get this effect. It was taken on a Kodak digital camera, not a DSL.

I usually name the photos to describe what I see. But everyone usually sees something different in each image, they are what you see. Often the images look better upside down or rotated ninety degrees. The image is printed as taken, with no editing or image enhancements.

Peloton Down:

This photo was taken in Canberra, Australia. I used a point and shoot Kodak digital camera, not a DSL. I drove out to a large parking area near the Airport and just waved my camera around in a random pattern. I can see people falling off their bikes so have named it Peloton Down.

The name reflects what I see, but everyone usually sees something different in each image, they are what you see. Often the images look better upside down or rotated ninety degrees. The image is printed as taken, with no editing or image enhancements.

Dennis Smith is an Australian poet and photographer. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in May 1999. Prior to this he had no interest in poetry. He believes that the disease has been responsible for ignigting a creative streak that was probably hidden deep within him, and since then he have written about 400 poems covering a great variety of subjects, and continues to work on his Parkinson’s Photography series. His contributions to Snake-Oil Cure can be found here.
