My Train of Thought is Barreling Through….
Oh Boy, it’s been a busy Monday, Tuesday and start of Wednesday! There are workmen doing something very loud below me, I put an egg in the microwave (not a good idea), and I have eighteen tabs open in my browser (and only two are about jon & kate, I’m pleased to report).
Anyhoo, I thought I’d give you a little run down of the images going ’round in my head this week.
After seeing this image I wanted more, so I went to Reed’s site. I liked the pictures of other storm chasers best. Like this one:
So awesome, right? It reminded me of two images.
Jeff Wall, A Sudden Gust of Wind (after Hokusai) 1993*
*this is one of my favorite images of all time.
William Lamson, No. 15*
*A dealer once told me he wouldn’t represent me because my work is too much like William Lamson’s, which, while wildly flattering, is totally inaccurate.
Ok, so moving on from folks in a storm. I told you above that I was perusing PDN’s 2009 winners. While doing so, I came upon this mess:
You have something on your head, kid. This shot is by Nicole Hill Gerulat.
This was interesting to me, because I remembered the work of Meg Wachter. It looks like this:
It makes you think: which came first, the slime or the goop?
OK, moving on.
Here is a picture of the wild wild west, drawn by an art director:
And here is a photographic depiction of that wild west, as shot by Ian L. Sitren. Ian is my first willing interview victim on the new blog I’m writing for Induro Tripods. Check it out, we’ll be having an awesome time over there. Plus, Muscles!
O gosh, ok- finally- here are links to two galleries I compiled for The Daily Beast.
p.s. this is marilyn monroe before she went blonde. amazing how some l’oréal can change your look.
PPS ok finally this post is almost over. Watch this video, from A Photo Editor. It shall cause laughter.
