this is kazam (yes, real name). he is my hubby’s bestie. he is not only an easy-on-the-eyes lady killer, he is a talented musician and plays in a prince cover band, as, you guessed it, prince. this project is entirely collaborative. this is how kazam wanted to be seen, and i thought that was a good vision.
this is my pink telephone project. i found an old pink telephone and it got me thinking a lot about how we communicate now versus how we communicated back when i was young. it used to be that a family had a rotary telephone, and one could be reached if you were at home, or not.
then technology has stepped in making it easier and faster to communicate. we went from simply talking on our telephones to running businesses on them. the amazing leaps in technology and social media have changed the way we communicate forever.
i feel a lot has been lost, and some other things gained. i gained an entire community of friends and colleagues through the photo sharing site Flickr. in fact, i feel like this project would have never happened had it been for the fabulous people that i have met there that have changed my life forever.
i decided to place the pink rotary telephone alone in incongruous locations and situations. friends, family and strangers are photographed in unlikely and humorous situations to explore the concept of our constantly changing world and the way we communicate with each other in it.
