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.
