"Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts." -Walker Evans

Not a huge fan of using a quote instead of coming up with something clever here to say about the photographs below... but something echoed with the line "the eye traffics in feelings" while I was looking at the collection of images posted tonight. I'm enjoying the quietness of all of them, the abandonment in them... and the varying approach to seeing one's environment.

And so it goes..

This site is turning out really amazing. Wanted to thank those sending work in, both those who have had their work posted and those who have yet to be posted. I have received a tremendous volume of work and emails concerning this site. I love it.... but at this point have a confession to make.

I can't keep up.

I have been gathering work from many of you and have decided it best to have work posted in groups according to content, genre, ect. So I have a lot of work I haven't posted yet due to waiting for other pieces for it to fit with. Don't worry. I haven't forgotten about any of you.

I would love my next post to be dedicated to New Orleans based photographers but am waiting for more to come in. If you are one or you know one... get that photo over to me.

Any feedback on this site? I would love to hear what viewers and contributors have to say about wanderlustagraphy. Leave a comment and let me know.

"I have been posting on craigslist in various locations asking the question "are you masculine?" I invite myself over to the homes of whoever responds to the post and photograph them. We work together on how they pose and how they want to be

Turn 227. Situation 2 : The Subway Turnstile Pictures

"(More Turns) I developed a situation so that various subjects could be defined by the constraints of exactly the same mechanical apparatus. The scenario consisted of someone passing through a subway turnstile. At the moment that the subjects passed through the turnstile, unknown to them, I took their picture stationed at a distance of eleven feet. I stood there turning pages of a magazine observing subjects out of the corner of my eye, waiting for only the moment when they pushed the turnstile bar to release the shutter."

Call me homesick... but I wanted to get some of the kids working with the New Orleans Kid Camera Project onto wanderlustagraphy. I think they have amazing vision and take photos from the gut rather than any previous knowledge of what photos are supposed to look like. The project is amazing. There was plenty of really wonderful images to go through. I had a really hard time selecting these. I'm sure their organization would gladly accept and pass along feedback, donations... ect. Visit their site.

Their mission statement:

"The New Orleans Kid Camera Project was created to address the psychological andemotional impacts of Hurricane Katrina on children returning home to New Orleans. Through the use of photography, creative writing and mixed media, children from flooded neighborhoods explore their environment and express themselves, their stories and feelings with their friends. This project provides a venue for growth and recovery. By teaching the children tangible skills and exposing them to new means of expression, we hope to empower them to impact their lives and environment."

Though not directly related to one another, I found it interesting that I have recently received all four of these entries from the UK and Germany.
On another note: this site gets views from all over the globe.. would love to get some entries from South America, Mexico, China, Japan, Korea, India, Israel, New Zealand, Australia...etc. There have been views from such areas.. so if you come back and read this, please send some work in. I'd love to get this as diverse and global as possible.
