The Neighborhood Narcissus Project to me symbolizes the long nights of summer that seem calm, quiet, and very nostalgic. It was in the southwest suburbs where I walked with friends and rode bikes and skateboards as a kid. It is where we would escape the confinements of the house and go on adventures with no destination. We would explore side streets of towns and see nothing but garbage cans, sewer caps, and streetlights. Each town had different colors that radiated from light posts. The light would create a spotlight for each corner and would also create dark eerie shadows distant from the light posts and houses. When walking you would constantly enter and exit the shadows of the street. It wasn't the street corners or the towns that I was interested in, but it was the way the light made ordinary street corners and trees seem moody and beautiful. These street corners to me were as tranquil as a sunset. But most importantly as a kid these towns enabled me to free my mind from teenage angst a home away from home. These are shot with 35mm film.
