Time lapse from dawn ’til dusk in the Historic Roebling Wire Works building in Trenton, NJ. I was asked by the Director of the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market if I would be interested to make a time lapse of the event. At the site visit we settled on the best location for the camera to have the view be interesting. Since architecture is a such a feature in this building we framed the shot to be 2/3 rds architecture, and the lower 1/3 where the action would be.

One of my favorite parts about this time lapse is seeing the light, how it moves, how it changes color. There are quite a few unknown variables in projects like this, and sometimes, the unexpected results are more than you can imagine will be recorded.

SPECS. Time lapse was recorded on Saturday November 9th, 2013. – We set the camera to take a shot every 30 seconds, from about 7:00 am until about 7:00 pm. This timeline translates into approximately 1600 images. Here was my starting point with the basic calculation. One shot every 30 seconds X 10 hours = 1200 images (divided by 12 frames a second) =  one minute 40 secs – or thereabouts. (I think I got that right).


Jersey Fresh is an annual graffiti jam held in Trenton. Writers from all over NJ, NY, DC and MEX descend to ascend the walls at TerraCycle (a firm that makes pencil cases out of potato chip bags amongst other things). Organized by Leon Rainbow and his crew Vicious Styles, this event gets better every year. After a full day of painting and Hip-Hop, Rappers and DJ’s there was an after party at 219 Hanover – a funky building occupied by artists and musicians. I took a few photos of the folks I know – sorry if you don’t see yourself pictured – I didn’t want to be too much in the way documenting the event.
