Derek DelGaudio, writer, performance artist, and magician, reflects on magic’s changing place in society and considers its intertwined relationship with technology. DelGaudio notes that today, most people view magic as a form of deception, but to him, magic is about creating a moment of astonishment and transformation by weaving hidden narratives into his performances. Through his unique approach to storytelling, DelGaudio investigates how magic can still exist in a world where technology is capable of unveiling even the most hidden of secrets.

I always love watching other people take pictures, and I can’t help but think about all the images I inevitably end up in the background of. When I’m unprepared for it or posing or trying to smile… I think it’d be interesting to see an album of those moments, somehow they just seem more true to how I experienced it.
Thanks for watching.

the american city
I’ve always been inspired by the Depression Era photography of Walker Evans and his portrayal of a changing America. Today many American cities are in a similar stage of transition and I was struck by how different the landscapes must have looked just a few years ago. As the trees and plants grow up from the crumbling foundations - it’s as if they’re being swallowed back up by the Earth.
