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.

Michael Powers: A Summer's Light

   Summer’s light is coming to an end.

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.

Hannah Engelson: Sleepers

I started the series “Sleepers” in 2010. The first photo I made without much thought. However, it's turned out to be one of my favorite images to date (see below)

Shane © Hannah Engelson
I was running late to one of my last morning classes as an undergraduate. Still half asleep, I turned back to say goodbye to Shane before leaving. I noticed the curtain had come undone and a small patch of light was sifting in. I sleepily took a couple photos instead of waking him. All the while, wishing I could get back into bed.

In India I was always stuck by how people seemed so comfortable being in close proximity to one another. I was dozing in the top bunk of a (to put it mildly) hot, crowded train when I looked down and saw some fellow passengers asleep.

During Winter Storm Nemo a group of friends and I camped out at my friend Meredith's house. We knew we would be trapped wherever we were when the snow started to fall and decided we might as well make sure we were trapped together.

The Hobbit © Hannah Engelson
In the midst of a Boston heatwave, a friend from work needed a place for him and his friends to stay. Their initial plan was to sleep on a friend’s floor between attending a gaming convention. I countered by offering them the couches at the home I was house sitting. They referred to themselves as the “Hobbits” who had found their way to the comfort of air conditioning and a fully stocked refrigerator of "Rivendell".

I made this picture before they woke up despite strong feelings of guilt for not offering a blanket the night before.
