About

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 Kodak Instamatic camera at the age of 7, and nothing was safe after that!  Tools now include: Sony, Canon, Leica, Lumix, Polaroid, Lumia, iPhone, Hipstamatic, and other camera and editing apps.

Remages = Photography & multimedia, created to delight the senses, confound the mind, evoke feelings, and provoke reactions:

  • 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: various new, and vintage, hi-and-lo-res, offbeat, retro and imperfect devices for capturing and translating the fleeting moments of life into images.
