What I Do – Episode 1 – Tony Sansevero

Artist Homemade Haunted House Documentary Film

I’m excited to share the first episode of “What I Do” with everyone. This is a new documentary series I started with Steven Hugh Nelson and Robert Kaval. We’re setting out to tell stories about the interesting things interesting people do. In the first episode we followed around illustrator Tony Sansevero on the weeks leading up to Halloween. He’s been creating a haunted house in front of his Austin, Texas home for the last 14 years.

Check out Tony’s work here.
This episode was scored by Velleitie.

Invisible Cities.

“View South-West along 2nd Ave. from E. 121st St. Harlem, NY 1988”
by: Camilo Jose Vergara

This has to be the most in-depth photo project I am aware of by a single photographer. With “Invisible Cities,” Camilo Jose Vergara documented Harlem, New York, Camden, New Jersey and more recently Richmond, Virginia returning often to take the same photo each time.  This project, spanning over 30 years, is simply mind blowing. Seeing these urban landscapes changing is a gift to the cities and to the history books.

Check out the entire 3 city project at Invisible Cities.

I’d love to see someone like Google Earth take on a project like this on a larger scale, it would lose the intimacy of Vergara’s photos, but would be interesting nonetheless.
