About Us

Camera Records in Time was formed and founded by Traverse Day Robinette and fellow photographer Sam Quinn in the summer of 2009 out of a desire to create an environment where photographers can habitually come together to support one another artistically and receive feedback about their work.

Laura Miner: Sprinkles

This is a new work in progress in which I photograph sprinkles out of their usual context. They lack a reference of scale and paired with a plain background it manipulates the viewer's understanding of the subject matter.

It is difficult to understand how large the subject is, and most observers look for ques in the texture and color to reconcile this. Most believe at first glance that they are jelly beans - if it is edible at all. And while that is still a good guess (a small sugary morsel) the guess isn't small enough. My titles explain it all: Sprinkles.

The first photo, Sprinkles (Orange and Blue) was the jumping off point. I had taken photos of sprinkles in various ways to explore their textures and shapes. This photo was the only one during that session where I separated two from the larger group. This image was chosen for a juried show at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA called Massachusetts. The show was simply a selection of new and emerging artists from Massachusetts who work in various mediums. There was something about Orange and Blue that made me add it to three of the sprinkle photos I would submit for that show, and it obviously struck a cord with the jurors too.

After that I felt encouraged to continue exploring this format: one to three sprinkles having their portrait taken in front of a seamless background. I'm trying out different pairings in size and color, as well as picking out oddities in each individual. The darker pink flecks in Sprinkles (Pink) really struck me. I will continue to pursue this with different angles and lighting.

Hannah Engelson: More Sleepers

Originally I began the Sleeper series as a lark, taking photos when I happened to have my camera around people sound asleep.

 To continue with the project, I developed a few new approaches to documenting slumber.

In order to photograph myself asleep I set my camera timer to go off every minute beginning at sunrise. For months I would carefully set the camera up before bed and wake in the morning, excited to see what was captured while I slept.

Enough friends have heard about this project that I've been getting offers to stay overnight on the couch and photograph them. Meghan was one of those willing participants.

An unsuspecting mist grows wild one morning, 
awakening a once forgotten memory.

I have dreamt of when this time would come. 
A perfect light to the end of the beginning.

Laura Miner: Presence

Presence I © Laura Miner 2013
The image on the right is a photograph of milk in water.
A good amount of people viewed this image at two different craft fairs I vended at, and most thought it was smoke. It was still a fine guess. What I want to achieve is a ghostly image. This series of images is about me exploring the possibilities of capturing a presence; something hanging in the air. Something that twists, writhes and is unexplainable.

My goal is to essentially mix these images with those from the Tiny Ghosts post from May. Having wallpaper helps domesticate the scene, but I want to go forward with building tiny underwater sets with furniture and more complicated lighting.

My website features these images and two videos of the food dye and air bubbles in action. I hope to soon share the fully realized concept.

Traverse Day Robinette: A Thing Called Love

District of Columbia; Part One, 2010 © Traverse Day Robinette
I want to show a moment in time when I was in love. A time when nothing mattered except to be with this individual. It has been over three years since that summer. I can’t forget this time, nor am I suppose to.

 Our past is not always something we want to remember yet it is a part of us regardless of what we want. Our memories make us who we are. Saying this doesn’t make it any easier for me to share these images.

 You were always away during the summer and I had to go looking for you. You were pursuing those dreams of yours. I just didn’t know it yet, but I was not in those dreams.

Shadows of a memory are all that remain. You slipped away. We drifted away.
