PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 CULTURE RESOURCE

Howard Hurd + My Dog Sighs Short Film

Local photographer and film maker Howard Hurd recently approached local artist My Dog Sighs with an idea for a short film featuring him preparing for his upcoming exhibition in the Big Apple.

I have a lot of admiration for the pair, regular readers of Strong Island know My Dog Sighs well but Howard is one of Portsmouth’s best and most prolific photographers. In this video Howard uses a fascinating technique called free lensing which involves holding the camera lens in front of the camera body and physically moving the focus. It creates a beautiful softness and you can see the results for yourself below.

For anyone who fancies a trip to New York, already lives in New York or knows someone that lives in New York the show opens on Thursday 6th October and runs until 16th at S-Artapace, Lower Manhattan, NY 10013. For more information check out the Facebook Event.

Howard Hurd can be found on Twitter @howardhurd and on Instagram.
