EXPERIENCE OF THE IMAGE: from David Rapoport on Vimeo.
EXPERIENCE of the IMAGE: Fine Art Project (non-commercial): Black and white photographs taken in Greenwich Village, West Village, and Soho, during the 1980's, and 90’s. Total freedom is: 1) emotional independence, 2) clarity of mind, 3) present moment, 4) no addictions, without 5) grasping to the known. In this practice, there is: 1) contentment, 2) happiness, 3) fulfillment, and 4) stability. This experience is about existing, co-existing, art, culture, Bohemia, inspired minds, intellectualism, spirituality, and sensibility. It happens within a structured system, where creative minds meet, and can express themselves. Since we are civilized human beings, we can relate in very profound, significant, and intelligent ways, without obsessing, and (not) going out of control. We all have the potential to be ourselves: fully and totally. We belong to one another, as people of this world. I set out with a medium format camera to capture this in people. I wanted to show what life was (could be) like, and use the results of my work as an example for knowledge. The biggest challenge for me was to meet, people (as living subjects), in close proximity, with open field of vision, in the present moment, in the heart of New York City, and in public places. I got better and better at it, as I practiced doing it more and more. I seek to explore the notion of the limitations, and the relative nature of things that are known, versus the unknown and its possibilities. I also wish to communicate all of the the wonder, vulnerability, and newness, that makes this experience of creating the portrait image so worthwhile, through my photos.
