About the Work

I Turned My Camera On (And Took This Picture) No.2

This is the second in a series of images that I made by turning my camera on and pressing the button – two quick actions made one right after the other. I did not look through the viewfinder or at the screen. It has nothing to do with the Spoon song of the same name but I do love the band and that song.
