Photographs of note

Monday, June 27, 2016








"Francesca Woodman took her first-self portrait aged 13. 
At twenty-two she committed suicide."

Found this little article on The Telegraph,
I love Woodman's photographs, her skillful deconstruction of
reality
 they feel real in the same way as The Bell Jar
their striking immediacy.


two. 
Matthew Lefheit's photos didn't make it into Yale Daily News and
they're beautiful

New things on my bedroom wall: collages from surrealist favorite 
"Genesi from the Museum of Sleep" by Romeo Castellucci and 
destroyed film photos of Kate by Glen

On art and love

Tuesday, June 14, 2016


"I want to give you the secrets of the constant alchemy that we must practice to turn brass into gold, hate into love, destruction into creation- to change the crass daily news into inspiration, and despair into joy. None need misinterpret this as indifference to the state of the world or to the actions by which we can stem the destructiveness of the corrupt system. There is an acknowledgement that, as human beings, we need nourishment to sustain the life of the spirit, so that we can act in the world, but I don't mean turn away. I mean we must gain our strength and our values from self-growth and self-discovery. Against all odds, all handicaps, against the chamber of horrors we call history, man has continued to dream and to depict its opposite. This is what we have to do. We do not escape into philosophy, psychology, and art- we go there to restore our shattered selves into whole ones."

-Anaïs Nin
