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.

Kate Trenerry: Digital - Analog - Digital

These self portraits were initially shot using a Canon Rebel XSi. They were loaded onto a MacBook Pro and edited in Photoshop. Next, using the MacBook and a traditional darkroom, they were printed by manually adjusting the brightness of the laptop screen to expose photo paper placed directly against it for about 2.5 seconds. This process created the unique stamp that appears on each black and white image. These prints were digitally scanned and appear here.

The steps taken to create these photographs are an intentional entanglement of digital and analog processes. In parallel, the content of the series explores the same relationship between the digital and analog within the context of the human body. Our human existence is increasingly expressed through digital means, the two becoming interwoven reflections of one another. This interdependent identity can hold both conflict and harmony while its value remains deeply personal, to be navigated by individuals as the phenomenon washes over us all.

Traverse Day Robinette: El Salvador

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.
