Mandala Space by William Cudd

A Fibonacci pyramid covered in a layer of gold that’s 50 micron thick is adjusted above my head. Inside sits an LED board of 5 - 10 watt led lights sandwiched between two purple Tesla plates. I close my eyes and shortly after lights flash at different frequencies and intensity against my eye lids. Within a minute it no longer feels like my eyes are closed but rather like I'm staring up into the celling of a large open room with geometric patterns oscillating and spinning against a wall.

I forget how I cam across William. Something about light therapy caught my attention so I reached out. After talking with him briefly I wanted to know what causes someone to purchase a light that cost $5555 (an angel number) and start a company that offers light therapy. William revealed to me that when he was 12 he got into a fatal car accident with his mother that undoubtedly caused him to endure some dark years trying to make sense of it. He begin to investigate holistic practices as a way of healing. Through a friend he came across the light and after much investigation decided he wanted to share it with others. 


4th by William Cudd

Got some film back that I shot on the 4th. Everyone got trashed, I drank a bunch of pamplemousse.


Pogs and Psychedelia by William Cudd

Spent the day shooting outside of the city in rural New Jersey. I shot the story on digital so I could have more control in post but after I got the 35mm developed at Color House Im wishing I did the whole story on 35. 


Northern Idaho by William Cudd

Spent a week visiting my folks in Northern Idaho. Rummaging through old boxes I found my dad's old Olympus OSM-1 and some expired film from the 90's. Ran into a great Pyrenees named Rosie who puked while I was taking a picture.
