Rushing Under My Wheels: A Photo Series from Sean Schmidt

There is some irony to this feature, with its coupling of a disposable camera and a renewable resource. The life of a bicycle and a cyclist shot through one of those cardboard and plastic cameras, the ones we all used to use before their were digital cameras or we found our grandmothers vintage Polaroid, is the premiss of a new photo series from Sean Schmidt. As the human continues to act on the past and present mentality that the world is resilient, that our resources are bountiful, and that are effect is minimal, a bike rider serves as an interesting counter point aside the disposable accessory of a drugstore camera. In as much, a disposable camera that has the ability to capture time and as always proves powerful, or rather indisposable. Schmidt’s photos reflect a subtle and average existence with the dated feeling of a past that existed not so long ago and a future that’s unclear.
