ARC Magazine reports on photographer and graphic designer Rodell Warner, who works in Trinidad and Tobago.
During the first week of June Rodell Warner made some pictures on Frederick Street in Port of Spain using a camera hidden in a box, without looking through the viewfinder or at the display. Reviewing the pictures he captured the collective feeling and dynamic of the people passing. A lot of his method is also reminiscent of the covert methodology employed by the American master Walker Evan’s Subway Series with a distant stylization to Phillip Lorca diCorcia Heads Series.
He returned the images to Frederick Street, shared the pictures with the people in the pictures. He then installed the ones that he thought related his experience on Frederick Street, not far from where they had been taken, definitely in the path of the people in the pictures.
