A New York Moment: Emile Dubuisson
Tuesday, January 19, 2010
When Emile Dubuisson first came to the city he lived on a house boat in Hoboken. He learned that accidents beget good photographs.
Emile Dubuisson came to New York from France. His first project was photographing the homeless men who lived along the train tracks in Hoboken.
Today Dubuisson shoots both outdoors and indoors, always making room for the accidental. His one piece of advice is "Think like a film director and try to edit your work to make a story. A 12-image sequenced series is a good start to show your point of view. You will be surprised to find out that some of your photographs mean much more than you thought at the time. The sequence should look like a sentence of a book. A word is a frame - a sequence a story"
Before setting up residence in the area, Emile Dubuisson spent some time in Siberia. Check out the slide show to see the stories his photos tell.
