Day 8 – visual diary by Theo Stanley / nyc @theo_stanley Good night from nyc, this is my final post as part of this project. I appreciate the forum and a focus on photography with an audience that is serious about photography. My career is in moving image, and although photography is at the basis of my work as a director and dp, it’s been nice for me to have a creative focus on the still image, which I am wanting to give more time. Thanks for looking in, and to those that shared their thoughts in return. Feel free to continue the dialogue with me at @theo_stanley Thanks to David Alan Harvey @davidalanharvey and Diego Orlando @diegorlando for such a great venue and ongoing project. @burndiary @burnmagazine

Self portrait

Day 8 – visual diary by Theo Stanley / nyc @theo_stanley This image is another self portrait for my continued series #theostanleyself I will often note a location or opportunity for an image, but if the conditions aren’t right, will return to the location when I am back in that area to try and get what I was after. This image worked well in color too, but black and white gave it more congruity in the optical composites, and made it feel more controlled in the end.

Day 8 – visual diary by Theo Stanley / nyc @theo_stanley Good morning from my final day posting for this diary. To start the day I found this tangle satisfying.

Objects

Day 7 – visual diary by Theo Stanley / nyc @theo_stanley An arrangement of some various objects of interest. I love sculptural objects, and seem to accumulate stuff more than I should. Each item has a way of justifying itself as it holds an idea or memory, or becomes a prop or element in a photograph or film, or is rewarding for me just to look at or handle. Any collection drastically improves as it is refined, any nyc’s compressed spaces demand it. For those items that I part with, I photograph them in a typified way before letting it go. Which I guess is a way of not really letting it go. #theostanleyself

Cigarettes

Day 7 – visual diary by Theo Stanley / nyc @theo_stanley#nycnarrative It’s hard for me to really settle within this image, the blocks of color acting as pixels and pulling together to resolve into another image trying to chaotically push through.
