It's been dawning on me lately that I have a pretty large pool of photos in my inbox and though I've looked at all of them, I haven't been able to get back to some of them for weeks, if not months, to find a wanderlustagraphy theme that pieces them all together again. For those of you that have sent work in and haven't seen it... I'm trying my best to get to it. We can try a few different methods for alleviating the back up. Send in more work/new work (just to refresh my memory if it's been a while since your first email) or perhaps suggest a mini-theme for the following week (s) that could incorporate your work and/or another photographers that you know. It's in my hopes that I am posting new / interesting work. I am open to feedback, comments, criticism, etc.

On a non-photo note, I just saw the Magnetic Fields play a sold out show at Town Hall in NYC and it was awesome.

And on a photo-note, there have been some really good openings in NYC lately. If you are around this Thursday, I highly recommend heading to Peter Hay Halpert Gallery for Martine Fougeron's solo show "Tete-a-Tete" and to Hasted Hunt for Paolo Ventura's solo show, "Winter Stories".

AND last but not least, on Wednesday, the 27th, Summer Kemick and Michael Kwiecinski are showing at the 2nd floor Gallery @ SVA: 214 E. 21st St. 2nd Fl. Btwn 2nd and 3rd ave.

Poem for a Thursday

Through frozen rice fields,
moving slowly on horseback,
my shadow creeps by

Its pushing towards the end of the afternoon on a Friday and I'm feeling weighted... still recovering from my post-vacation weariness, from a busy work week and from the cold... perhaps due to this, was enjoying the following photographers work that feels a little heavy. I'm not entirely sure of the background stories on all of these... but they feel personal... a tad on the poetic side... and psychological. They work well as a series, so make sure to look through their websites.
