  1. 03:45. NEW YORK as THEME PARK (4k resolution is also available):

    This is New York, the way you always wanted it to be. This series happened as a result of some unexpected, dissipation of energy, on paper.

    It started as 35mm still film images.

    The beginning stages were embellished, with art materials. Somehow, I envisioned what the results would be before the works were completed, specifically: while I was in the process of constructing them.

    This interpretation of the urban landscape was created to make others feel more alive, using my personal mind associations of my feelings about being here.

    Space, and place. Childhood memories of theme parks (ie.: Disney World, Man and His World, and various Amusement Parks).

    Original (finished) artworks: on paper: each one is 20.25x16.25 inches in size.

    Special thanks to GuruDev (JGD), Robert, Peter H., Peter, Arne, Charlelie, SVA, and Art Students League.

  2. 01:45. Untitled (A Color Field Interpretation of a Metaphysical Portrait (Part 1)): Version 2 (4k version is also available).

    It can also be about some kind of mental perception, lightness, sensibility, or energy in motion. I believe that photography sees differently than we do, and this is the fascination of it for me. One begins to notice a difference: in the camera eye, and how he or she would visualize the subject, if that person was actually there.

    This reality shift is the METAPHYSICS: contained in these portraits.

    Original (finished) artworks: on paper: each one is 8x10, 20.25x16.25, or 20.25x30.25 inches in size.

    Documentary portraits by: David Rapoport (2010).
    What do we value most in an image? What is most significant?

    Each photograph is about what is in the frame. The subject matters.
    What do we communicate in this process?

    Thanks to: GuruDev, Robert, Charles, Elinor, Silvio, and SVA.

  5. 05:34. (When I Look) i_Consume:

    Please take these pictures for their face value: or for what they are worth:

    1) What people consume (we all must do this):

    2) Photographs of people who are selling, consuming (or in the act of consumption):

    3) The story of shopping in the urban center (and consuming all of the treasures):

    4) Odd, conventional, fantastic (and bigger than life):

    5) What is sold everywhere (or in your favorite store):

    6) What I am consuming: the pictures of people who are consuming:

    7) This is a documentary series: the photos were taken out in the field: (NYC, 2003-2008):

    8) i_Consume was one of my Grad School projects, and:

    9) It might have been my long search for the perfect man-made object.

    10) I wanted to get the most out of my life, although that in the back of my mind, I knew that there was something more: beyond the busy market place.
