The most consistent conclusion I have drawn in my travels is that no one really knows what’s going on –it is apathy and self-­‐preservation, which define the sociopolitical aspects of the cities and their societies. By Philip-­Lorca diCorcia, Reflections on Streetwork 1993-­1997 The elements, which call into question the normal relationship of appearance to truth in …

I told my friend I was reading Glenn O’Brien’s intro essay to Dash Snow ’s I Love You, Stupid. He said he always thought Dash Snow was a shitty artist and immediately exited Gchat.

Lee Friedlander is a photographer, never forget. Although a major photographic artist, he is not an ‘artist utilising photography.’ He uses the camera, that unthinking machine, to transcribe his visual perceptions of the world.

The release of Django: Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s most-recent mash-up of spaghetti western and blaxploitation genres, about a slave turned bounty hunter who seeks to avenge his wife’s enslavement, reminds us of the reach the cinema of Sergio Leone has had.

In the fall of 1990, Keizo Kitajima received a commission from Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper to visit the Soviet Union, the opportunity to spend a year documenting both people and places in what was then a monolithic entity. 15 republics, 11 time zones, and thousands of miles spanning the two—the task was daunting in the …

These were the first words William Eggleston uttered when I asked what he felt he was accomplishing with his photographs. Another fine photographer from the South, William Christenberry, had brought Eggleston to meet me at the Corcoran Gallery of Art around 1970.

Part of this is about the new flexibility of digital photography. You are able to shoot and shoot and then look at everything on screen. The technology does liberate people. You can get remarkable quality, close to 4x5, working on the street.

There are almost no humans in Wender’s photos. I almost forget there’s a human behind the camera in a way that would never happen with other road trip photographers.

Advertisement As a chronicler of the good life, as lived by the upper classes and aristocracy in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s, Slim Aarons was a man obsessed. Born in New Hampshire in the early years of the century, he was a classic outsider looking in, and as such he idealized the rich. With the …

Just returned from an excellent few hours at the 57th Antique Mall. Everyone working there was fantastic, friendly and helpful. I collect American postcards and only spent $25 in total but everyone treated me as if I was a valuable customer or "regular". Also, the cafe (Evan's) is fantastic, the food great. Omelettes and burgers, etc. Looking forward to going back.
