We’ve just gotten our crime scene photos back from the lab and present them here, as is SLBAAC protocol, so members of other committees within SLBAAC may consider the evidence as well.
For this crime scene we used a combination of macro photography as well as a pinhole camera that we picked up at MOMA on an adventure in NYC. The macro/pinhole combo allows us to focus on details without losing sight of the bigger picture. Having used our last roll of Kodachrome on the crime scene of Case File 004221 (Spontaneous Human Combustion at the Silver Lake Lounge) we shot these on Kodak BW400CN, our favorite 35mm B&W stock.
The Crime Scene as it first presented itself to us.
Fernando Fernando, the great Conceptual Installationist. Snuffed out too soon. There were no immediate signs of struggle.
The materials Fernando Fernando was working with before his death?
Note spots and smudges on glass. Clearly Fernando Fernando was not careful in the washing of his tumbler. In a rush perhaps? Did he know his minutes were numbered? Or simply, not that clean of a guy.
Glasses do seem to indicate scotch glass. Also could use a cleaning.
We find the double exposure really helps us think out of the box and avoid the fatal trap of concentrating too much on the obvious and visible evidence.
Case file remains open. More details to come. -Josh & Jeff
