There’s An ‘Ap For That: Night Photo of Chumash Traditional Village Along The Pacific

In Malibu, California, there is a living Chumash village perched along cliffs overlooking the Pacific. This village is the vision of Mati Waiya, who wanted to create a living Chumash cultural village, one in which people stay, eat, live, and people come to learn about native plants, sustainability, ecology, and more through the lens of traditional Chumash cultural values and practices. The village is on land that is the historic home of the Chumash, with eight Chumash prehistoric sites existing within a half mile of the present village, existing as early as 4000-6000 BC. Everything came together during this magical night: the beauty of the location, the kindness of the people in the village, the clean ocean air, the magic and cultural significance of the Chumash village, and the act of “light painting” photography, something I love to do.

I illuminated the ‘ap, the name for the round, traditional Chumash thatched home, with a ProtoMachine LED2 flashlight, a flashlight that can change different colors with the press of a button and is designed for “light painting” such as this. The home was illuminated during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. I illuminated the interior with a red light to make it look as if people were keeping warm by the flames.

Mati Waiya believes that with the new technology of cellphones and social media, we are losing the connectivity between people. But he of course understands that we do need to use this to attempt to bring people together. This cultural village attempts to do that, teaching about the earth through activities and ceremony and more. I entitled this photo “There’s An ‘Ap For That” because I was mindful of his words while taking this photo, a photo of the first home on this land that Mati Waiya built about eight years ago.

Un ‘ap, una casa tradicional nativo americano de Chumash. La foto fue tomada durante una luna llena. PIntura de luz con un Protomachine LED2. Todo el trabajo de color se hizo durante la exposición, y no es una creación de Photoshop. Tengo derecho esta foto “There’s An ‘Ap For That” (“Hay un ‘Ap para eso”) porque yo era consciente de sus palabras mientras tomo esta foto, una foto de la primera casa en esta tierra que Mati Waiya construido hace ocho años antes.

Space Shuttle Escape System Test Vehicle Prototype:
After the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, NASA grounded all fleet and then created an escape system for future flights. This system provides the orbiter flight crew members with a means for rapid and safe exit at a remote or emergency landing site. This sled was put on a railroad track with booster rockets behind it and dummies were pulled out of the mock shuttle cockpit. Built by Rockwell International now the Boeing Company. Acquired from a donation from Boeing.Title: Space Shuttle Escape Pod (6335)

 The Joe Davies Heritage Airpark in Palmdale, CA showcases a collection of aircraft flown, tested, designed, produced or modified at U.S. Air Force Plant 42, a source of pride and prestige for the city. The airpark was rededicated in Joe’s name in February 2008 in recognition of his tenure as commander of Plant 42, his service as a Palmdale City Councilman, and his role as commissioner on Palmdale’s Aviation and Aerospace Commission. The airpark displays aerospace, military, and civilian aircraft. I feel grateful and honored to have been granted access at night to photograph these magnificent planes.

F-104 Starfighter BuNo. 57-0915:
The Starfighter is a single-engine, supersonic interceptor aircraft originally developed by Lockheed for the United States Air Force (USAF). One of the Century Series of aircraft, it was operated by the air forces of more than a dozen nations from 1958 to 2004. Its design team was led by the same man who later went on to design the SR-71 Blackbird, Kelly Johnson. on loan from the U.S. Air Force. The F-104 was the first aircraft to simultaneously hold the world speed and altitude records. On 7 May 1958 U.S. Air Force Major Howard C. Johnson, flying YF-104A 55-2957, broke the world altitude record by flying to 91,243 feet (27,811 m) at Edwards AFB. On 16 May 1958, U.S. Air Force Capt Walter W. Irwin flying YF-104A 55-2969 set a world speed record of 1,404.19 miles per hour (2,259.82 km/h) over a 15/25 kilometer course at Edwards AFB.Title: The Starfighter In Red

Boeing 747 Tail #N911NA: 
Built by The Boeing Company, this shuttle vehicle transport carrier is one of two that ferried the Space Shuttles to and from destinations, and is on loan from NASA Armstrong.  The aircraft was extensively modified by Boeing in 1976. This shuttle carrier was retired on February 8, 2012 after its final mission to the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, California, and will be used as a source of parts for NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). It is currently on loan for display to Joe Davies Heritage Airpark.
