A few weeks ago I took myself on a photo trip to Explora, our awesome children’s science museum, to add an indoor twist on a series I am building about the new texture of play. This place practically vibrates with motion and energy, and I, without my children (shhh, don’t tell them!), allowed myself to just drift with my camera on the waves of the space and the noise. It was an intense visit – exhausting, really, with rolling waves of hundreds of children on field trips – a barely contained chaos – undulation large and small.
Out of deference for their teachers (“who is that lady with the big camera taking pictures of our students?!”) and my own timidness, I kept my lens trained on inanimate objects, finding some beautiful (and far more manageable) motion there too.
