Fireflies

fireflies. pos.2

In the dark afternoons of Winter Solstice time, we give headlamps and flashlights to the preschoolers to brighten their outdoor play. I documented their movements with an old-fashioned camera trick: analog film, tripod, shutter-release cable, and a combination of long and multiple exposures per frame. I call the series, “Fireflies”.

One thought on “Fireflies

  1. Later, when looking at a sample of emergent writing from a 3-y-old preschooler, I saw marks on the paper similar to the marks made by the flashlights on film. It made me wonder about macro- and micro-movements in the development of children. It would be interesting to make further visual comparison, maybe a research hypothesis.
