Visual Portrait of Coney Island

In collaboration with Ansley Guthrie, we shot 100 feet of 16 mm film in the Bolex H 16 at Coney Island to make a visual portrait of Coney Island in the winter. This was our first time shooting with an analogue film camera. We wanted to show Coney Island from a different lens than how it is usually portrayed. In the winter, the area is deserted because of the weather. We were interested in shooting abstract shapes and textures that will portray our message. We made the following moodboard with photographs that we took of the area: 

I am an international student from Venezuela that desires to communicate with the world around me visually. I hope that I can become a part of the global conversation where I can tell stories that are untold. With a background in business and languages, I have experienced how different fields will always connect at some points, and I aspire to reinforce that connection in my work. I believe that there is not one pure aesthetic, and therefore I have chosen to collaborate and learn from those around me to every day grow as an artist.
