Print: Streetcar (City Park to Canal)

Streetcar (City Park to Canal) is an 11"x14" gelatin silver print. I made it by cutting up negatives from a 35mm half-frame camera and collaging them in a 4x5 glass negative carrier. All the negatives were made looking out the windows of a streetcar going from City Park to Canal St. in New Orleans. The print is designed to convey the wandering of my eye around the streetcar, as well as the passage of time. I want the image to exude the experience and emotion of riding a near-empty streetcar.
