    JIVAMUKTI YOGA CENTER NEW YORK: Sunset Gita Class: on Tuesday, June, 21, 2011.

    As I look within myself in this moment:. I remember His presence. He has significantly and positively changed my life. I am very thankful to Radhanath Swami, Joshua, and David, for this profound experience.

    I made this video, keeping my perceptions of the whole world accessible to me.

    I admire this man, because he has all of his values in place.

    Also, he is unconventional, and lives in a different reality, unknown to most people.

    A documentary film by: David Rapoport (a.k.a. RAPORTSKY). It was completed in 2018.

    Special thanks to GuruDev, JGD.

    Hari Om. Namaste.

  3. 00:30. Slideshow, Music, and Artist's Narrative:

    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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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. /// © 2015 by David Rapoport. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
