Along for the Ride

Simeon Posen


Simeon Posen has been fascinated by the brash excitement and engineering marvels of the midway since he was a young boy. For the last 17 years he has explored this by photographing the rides and their spinning lights, recording their patterns of movement as they weave lines across the night sky. Shot using a Pentax camera with 400 film, Posen has achieved a way for us to experience the sensation of speed and motion in a still image.
