Further information:
Mike Mandel is pictured at various locations including Disneyland, the beach, and Dodgers stadium: "For the past year self portraits have been my constant passion. At every opportunity I would fasten my camera to its tripod and steal from the house out into the insane world of everyday people, in hope of recording a bit of real fantasy. And as the world of fantasy is governed by another dimension in time, I had to learn to react and compose my photograph with great speed. The self-timer buzzes for ten full seconds, allowing the world to change its complexion right in front of my static lens [...] The people react to my presence, to the buzzing machine a few feet away, to the words I have to say – suddenly, click!”
