Friday Foto: L.A. Flipwalk #1

Back in 2004 and 2005, I did a series of flipwalks in my neighborhood in lower Manhattan: I would leave my house and flip a coin at every intersection to determine my route. After an hour, my timer would go off and I would photograph the block where I ended up. I posted the pictures […]

Never let it be said I don’t finish what I start: this is the last photo in the flipwalk project. I’ve been working on this for almost six years–admittedly, with some long gaps along the way. As usual, the above is just a teaser image; for the full picture and the story of how I […]

I’ve been working on the flipwalk project for almost six years now. The first time I left my house with a coin and a camera was back in July 2004: I walked for an hour, then stopped and took pictures of where I had ended up. I wasn’t sure what I had started, but it […]

The flipwalk project is almost over: just (spoiler alert!) two more walks in Lower Manhattan after this one. The forty-sixth walk took place on Independence Day of 2005; I believe I had some time to kill before I went uptown to watch the fireworks from a friend’s father’s river-view apartment. I have no idea why […]

I didn’t start the flipwalk project until almost three years had passed after the attacks of 9/11. The random walks around lower Manhattan lasted just about exactly a year, but it’s taken me over four years to finish writing them up. I’m sure there’s some equation that expresses the finely calibrated mix of having a […]

The flipwalks are more about space than time. When I look at them now, I remember the environment of downtown New York City, rather than the particular day I took a walk, but sometimes reading my notes will remind me of a time when I was jetlagged or bored or cheerful. (If you’re not familiar […]

Marching forward! (If you’re not familiar with the flipwalk project: while living in New York City, I took walks of exactly one hour in duration, my route determined along the way by flipping a coin. Then I would take a photograph of whatever block I was on when the hour was up.) This week’s teaser […]

I had a really bad year after 9/11. Eventually I got my internal gyroscope back, but I never really felt the same way about downtown New York City ever again. Even today, eight years after the attack, it has industrial scars and missing buildings and missing people. Taking these flipwalk photos helped me feel like […]

Shamefully, it’s been almost three months since my last flipwalk update. (If you’re not familiar with the flipwalk project: while living in New York City, I took walks of exactly one hour in duration, my route determined along the way by flipping a coin. Then I would take a photograph of whatever block I was […]
