I spent the summer of 2012 working at the Maine Media Workshops as a teaching assistant with their teen photo program. I took a number of classes on field trips to Old Orchard Beach to photograph the historic seaside carnival and beach activities. For over a year I forgot about this footage. Then one late-winter day, I found myself instantly and overwhelmingly yearning for summer and its accompanying sense of freedom and lightness.

This is a personal project, part of a series called “Videodes” (video + ode = a visual expression of an exalted emotion).
