Blog of Photographic Artist John Baucher aka Moochin Photoman which will primarily feature photographs taken using the technique 'Through the Viewfinder' (TtV).
Essentially photographs are made by taking a photograph with one camera 'Through the Viewfinder' of another camera.
I also reserve the right to have the occasional rant
Will my bodyguard as we waited for a parade in Leogane which was at the epi-centre of the Jan 2010 earthquake.
The parade was fantastic telling a potted history of Haiti. Having seen more than my fair share of parades here in Norn Iron i’d say that this was the best parade i’ve ever seen. Artistically well done and a little cheeky making it all the more fun. The choreographer kept himself busy jumping in and out of the parade to correct peoples positions and to ensure they were doing what they practised.
And what a city NY is. Sad to have left, glad to have been and looking forward to my next exploration of the city. I might even go up the Empire State or the Chrysler building or the Rockerfeller tower. Or even make it to the Guggenhein or MoMa, visit ground zero and see the Statue of Liberty but i had such a good time on the street that i just enjoyed that.
It was liberating to be able to go moochin and do what i wanted after only being able to move around Haiti with a bodyguard and driver and having to plan things for the near 3 weeks i was there.
I’m looking forward to a return to Haiti to fill some obvious gaps in my coverage of the issues facing the country and pursue other not so apparent threads of interest that the next few weeks of editing will inevitably reveal.
