I spent a couple of years in college as a Music Theory and Composition major, and it was there that I learned of John Cage and aleatory music. I worked on a number of experiments in that direction, which resulted in a combination of excitement and disappointment, par for the course when following those ideas.
I never thought to apply this to photography until I came across Brendan Comey, who was already doing this. The idea is to shoot a roll of film (underexposing by a couple of stops) and give it to someone else, who then shoots that same roll. The result is a series of double-exposures that may or may not work with one another. Because the frames will almost certainly not line up, there is a fair amount of discretion as to how the film should be cut, which is one of the few choices that can be made.
The roll I shot was exposed in Fells Point, Maryland, right outside of Baltimore, his were shot in Howth Co Dublin, mostly in Deer Park. This is a distance of well over 3,000 miles, as the crow flies (better yet, an airplane). As I wander through this image I keep seeing more, and wonder at the unintentional relationship of the elements. I think that John Cage might be proud.
