Cincinnati on Film: Disposable Series

In this new exploration of the urban environment, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, I have begun a series of photographs taken on 35mm film.  Since landing in this historic city, the quiet softness of the city and suburban culture has reminded me of the softness of film photography.  Things look like old photographs or artist renderings of a city.  Hand painted signs are easy to spot, and many buildings have painted plywood taking the place of missing doors and windows.  With this first series I'm using 400 speed film, and shooting from the hip, without using a viewfinder at all.
