One Take: The City at Night, A Study

In which we gave Little Rock photographer Errick Jackson a Polaroid, eight frames of film and one take to get the shot.

THE MOOD? Mysterious. There’s a lot of obscurity in the actual image—for the most part, you just see these points of light. I feel like it illustrates downtown a little bit, at least for me. I’m new to being down here all the time, so I’m still learning, like, what businesses there are here, what there is to do here. There’s new stuff popping up all the time. So the whole mystery for me is that, even though I’ve lived in Little Rock my whole life, I’ve never really spent much time in this part of it. What I ended up getting out of these images kind of translates to how I feel about my new neighborhood. How I’m slowly learning it.
