‘Still Movement,’ is a synchronic video diptych. On one screen are still portraits shot on a pinhole camera using 35mm film. On the other screen are video portraits shot simultaneously on a DSLR, recording for the duration of the pinhole exposure. The paired images show people I solicited on the street in downtown Providence, asking them to enact posing as if in mid-action. The series of 10 portraits, when played back, produce an effect where the pinhole photographs have caught movement while the video portraits feel like stills.
