You & Me On A Sunny Day.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

San Francisco-based Rocky McCorkle is a photographer and the creator of the world's first large-format film. It's also what he calls a "walk-through movie" and a "non-motion picture," meant to be viewed through a series of ordered stills that have been mounted, museum-style, on over 1000 feet of wall.

The images for You & Me On A Sunny Day, which tells the story of a widow haunted by flashbacks of her late husband, were shot every Sunday over the course of five years. The film stars Rocky's 85-year-old downstairs neighbor, Gilda, who now plans to be an actress in her next life.

View the entire sequence on Rocky McCorkle's website, here.

That is so neat! It would be wonderful to see the photos in real life. Cool that he got to spend all those Sundays with his 85 year old neighbour.

This is very cool. I love long term projects like this. Also, what a cool legacy, especially if he gifts the photos to her family.

This is so moving. I wish I could spend an afternoon with Gilda, myself.

Shoko said...

Kathy, I do, too!
