Ice, Dams and Trees: What I saw around Smith College and its Botanic Garden

On Saturday, I joined New England Oddities in their voyage towards Northampton, MA to visit The Botanic Garden at Smith College. I managed to capture some still photos inside and to film the surroundings around the garden. Outside, it was cold, cloudy and Black & White seemed the right choice to go for the video. However, inside the houses it was humid and warm and hence the photos got to keep their colors!

The video series starts on College lane right by Paradise pond’s dam, then follows the trails towards the Japanese garden & Tea Hut area.

 

And finally, I head back towards the Botanic garden and wander around the streets of Northampton, MA

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
