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.

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.
