If you haven’t heard of Noah Kalina, you are probably not one of the thirteen million viewers that have clicked on his You Tube video featuring six years of self portraits, with a separate website devoted to the project, and another project about Mr. Kalina posing with celebrities, or maybe the Simpson’s parody? Sounding familiar yet? Perhaps you’ve missed his blog or his magazine, Kalina, too.
Even if you have managed to miss any of the above, Noah Kalina knows how to take a photograph. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts, and now living in Brooklyn, Noah has exhibited world wide. Jake Stangel, of Too Much Chocolate, has a great interview with Mr. Kalina.
One of my favorite projects is, Road Trip, with images that capture the essence of time on the road. From the first image, where fellow travelers (still in their jackets) study the map over beers, in a cheap motel room with a gap in the door and curtain off it’s track. It’s all in the details and he knows how to find them.
