Looking and listening this week

I don’t know who said it but I recall a saying about the real challenge in mountain climbing comes after you reach the summit. I knew something similar to this was coming after five years of study and I thought I had figured out a way forward but that is not exactly going to plan.

Just as well I’m good at re invention. At least I hope I still am…

Looking and listening this week

My break is over but I got something new to read. Edward Weston: 125 Photographs is a beautiful object in its own right and the reproduction of the images within it was done with great care to preserve the tone and contrast of the originals. I am trying not to drool as I write this but honestly the seeming simplicity of the subject matter and the approach that screams this is the work of Edward Weston and no one else, make this a delicious feast for the eyes. All the more to appreciate when you consider the photographic technology of the time Weston was working.

Almost any photographer I would list this week would come across as less than so I put up this link to a small collection of Weston’s work (Warning: There will be images that contain nudity)

Listening to Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Cave and Chris Cornell. I guess I’m still stuck in the 90’s
