Stephen: Day 165

16 Aug

So, I’m working on a new set of photos. I got the idea this weekend when I was in Boston Commons relaxing in the sun. There’s this old carousel there in the summers (I’ve taken a picture of it before). I was struck by how horrifically terrified the animals looked. It’s such a weird concept for a children’s ride that’s so happy and fun. I wonder if this is an old style of carousel art? This carousel was built in the 30’s or 40’s.

Anyway, I’m going to try and go around and take pictures of different carousels to capture this horror-esque feeling. This is my first set. Hopefully I can hone in on the feel and aesthetic as I take more pictures.
