“It was a source of both terror and comfort to me then that I often seemed invisible — incompletely and minimally existent, in fact. It seemed to me that I made no impact on the world, and that in exchange I was privileged to watch it unawares.” — Marilynne Robinson, Housekeeping
Student Emma Hurst spent Field Work Term interning with filmmaker Rick Prelinger. During those seven weeks she reviewed thousands of home movies from the 1920s through the 1970s for Prelinger’s upcoming film No More Road Trips. And then she curated a collection of video stills from that footage on her blog, *Stills.
It is a stunning body of work. Warning: If you click through, you might find yourself down a rabbit hole of beauty and intrigue.
Really incredible, and as far as rabbit holes go—one of the best!
