To the lazy days of summer’s end, I welcome you. First, over to England for some great black and white photographs. A hot tip on a great little notebook. LARB—dish from Laos or book review website? Baa Baa Black Sheep by Wynton Marsalis is the perfect accompaniment to tour the work of a Portuguese goddess of abstract painting. “At night I would go to sleep dreaming of sea adventures.” – John Claridge
Agreat writer pens an essay on fear in America. Meet a Seattle artist obsessed with light, magic and the everyday. The working mom who invented software. So many podcasts and one great app. Wherever you are, the rain makes its own sound. How could you not love this. “Come into the light of things. Let nature be your teacher.”
Photographer Richard Tuschman | Hopper Meditations
Brilliant idea. New York based photographer Richard Tuschman has staged Edward Hopper’s emotionally charged melodramas as photographs. The sets you see (built by Tuschman) are tiny — they’re sized just about right for Smithers (Tuschman’s cat) to fit into. Models are then photographed against a gray seamless background and the images are fully realized in Photoshop. Extraordinary, no?
