About

Russell E. Murray - REMAGES - Portrait with his digital SLR in hand.This photo blog and website presents the images of Russell E. Murray a.k.a.: REM.  I share my initials with the acronym for “Rapid Eye Movement”, the eye/brain activity that indicates deep-sleep dreaming is in-progress; the place where the best (and most interesting) thoughts and visions happen.

So, in the spirit of “R.E.M.” (dreams, not the band, though I did meet Michael Stipe once at a restaurant), my images and multimedia are created and delivered under the fake moniker, pseudonym and secret identity “REMAGES”.

Question: does using a “nom de camera” or “nom de lens” make me a ghost-photographer?

How was REMAGES born?  Basically, I fell in love with my camera at the age of 7, and nothing was safe after that!  Tools (all digital now) include Canon, Leica, Lumia, Lumix, iPhone, Hipstamatic, and other camera and editing apps.

  • Specializing in iPhonography, Hipstamatic, candid & street photography, art-graphic, beautiful and bizarre elements and aspects of everyday, mundane objects.
  • Drawn to unusual points-of-view, different perspectives, alternative takes, the-space-between, things unseen and words unsaid – the essence of things.
  • Tools: Canon D5 DSLR, Leica, Lumia 40mp, Lumix, iPhone, plus various antique, lo-res, offbeat, retro and imperfect devices for capturing and translating the fleeting moments of life into images.
