Daniel Arnold - Odds and Ends
Early last week Pinery Films released a short documentary feature in which filmmakers Mika Altskan and Matvey Fiks follow photographer Daniel Arnold through the five-boroughs of New York as he attempts to capture the magic of the banal. The three minute video is fittingly shot on 16mm Kodak film and features some eye catching animation from Ilya L. Barrett.
Arnold’s brazen and voyeuristic attitude towards photography is aimed at capturing the true moments of life, the moments that others might think of as pointless, “I like pictures of life, not of people having their picture taken” explained the photographer. Arnold’s work has gained notoriety through his Instagram account, despite a short term ban from the app in 2012 for posting a photo of topless beachgoers.
You can watch the video here, and also check out Arnolds’s work on his Instagram.
