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.

Traverse Day Robinette: El Salvador

John; Fort Lauderdale and Jellyfish, 2011 © Traverse Day Robinette

Our journey started with an unexpected layover in Fort Lauderdale. August heat and jellyfish make for a horrible combination. No one was in the water except for a few kids and we could see jellyfish clearly in the surf. I asked the lifeguards if it was safe to swim and their response was "yes". I asked about the jellyfish and they replied "it's like a bee sting". Anyone who has ever been stung by a bee knows it's not a pleasurable experience. Now imagine swimming in water filled with jellyfish that sting like bees, which would be a terrible idea. John made it to waist deep in the surf before running back to shore in a world of pain.

Our Spanish was pathetic at best, and what better way to start our adventure then to take a bus from San Salvador to Barra de Santiago. People were extremely friendly, even with the details of "that is where they kill people". An elderly man points to the location out the window.

Memories of the jungle consist of ice cold rivers, oppressive humidity, and eating pupusas in the back of a pickup truck speeding down the highway. The jungle is a beautiful place.

I would surf and John would read. When I came back to shore he would say "You were really far out, there had to be sharks where you were at", and then catch me up on his discoveries of Patti Smith. One night phosphorescence washed up on the beach. As we ran, our footprints in the sand would flash green for an instant. I felt like a child in a picture book where anything was possible.

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,

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.
