1. 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 Street Portraits:

    In search of:

    1) my parents / teachers / Guru: of the heart,

    2) my spiritual 'self,'

    3) more (documentary) street portrait subjects,

    4) some kind of mental action / interaction,

    5) an experience (of the image),

    6) the possibility of freedom of expression, and:

    7) the right to exercise freedom of choice: yes or no: regarding participation in the project.

    This was my project for my MFA Thesis.

  3. 01:00. THIS PLACE (Small Town Project): (available in 4k resolution): Fine Art Photography:

    David created these video photo-essays about (the concept of) quality of life in chosen places.

    He explores why this idea is significant for him:

    The lifestyles of people offer us a glimpse into something potentially unknown to us, with tremendous value for society, and humankind.

    His realizations were made through stream of consciousness, intuition, and conscious awareness. He offers this creative knowledge (of the experience) to the viewer, without attention to the most obvious things.

    This video is about a specific place in: a borough of New York City. This work is of: Fine Art Street Photography (2014-6), commentary, and original music (by David Rapoport).

    This presentation is about the artist, (his interaction with) people, and the surrounding environment.

    David wishes to make more moving-picture films about places: hence the name: Small Town Project. /// © 2016 by David Rapoport. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
