    I like this piece because it expresses how brainwashing occurs in the military. Simple, yet elegant.

    sally mann, 1974

    she's cute. what a surprise. even though her daughters are beautiful in Immediate Family and miscellaneous. that she created such an imprint of distance in photos of her own children, i thought for sure she must look to be from a stern, remote plane. not the case. at least not here.


    this is more what i expected...

    Probably my favorite painting, don't know who it's by, but it encapsulates my feelings so well, and my love of rainy days.

    It really does remind me of Manet's Bar at the Folies-Bergere. That's probably really unfair.

    While visiting Thailand a few months ago, I was fortunate to check out a gallery in Bangkok. The buddhist artwork in there was some of the most beautiful paintings I have every seen. I tried taking pictures, but it's almost disgraceful how they came out...

    Huh, so I guess all that guy's paintings look like that, that makes the one less special, but I still like it.

    Anyway, I've been into Matisse lately, dig this: (portrait of madame matisse aka the green line)




    Looking at that, you just know that he gets IT, man.

    This is a short play (seriously, 1m:30s) by Sam Beckett called "Breath." Without the swastika this play loses its impact so Im glad the recreators included it.

    Breath

    if this is in reference to what i posted, you have the wrong idea, those paintings are done by different artists.

    I can't even express how his art makes me feel. Gooder? No, that's not even a word.

    Virginia at 9, sally mann

    mann's the best. they really need to release another photo book of her Immediate Family-esque photos. she had an exhibit or collection called Family Portraits--where's the accompanying book?

    oh, and i am feeling the above piece of art because it is ethereal, bluelight appropriate, and more difficult to find than the photos included in Immediate Family. i love the way the focus and fore-, middle, & background compliment the subject's slight twirling motion. the dress is perfect for the photo--like the focus, it is wonderful combination of sharp and soft--and virginia seems all about it.

    have you checked out any of her other work since? if so, what do you think?

    today i am feeling The New Mothers by mann, 1983. because jessie's dress is pretty, both the sisters have awesome poses, and it is just an all around fantastic photograph. though i am extremely hesitant to post any of the copies i am able to find online. the copy in aperture's publication of Immediate Family is far superior. not everyone has that book, so...



    this copy of the photo is much brighter than aperture's printing. also, the light spots on the top and right edge of the photo are blemishes not present on the actual film.

    another reasonable copy i was able to find...
    NSFW:

    this is a screenshot someone took in what i imagine to be a flash player preview. so the selection box can been seen and it is cropped different than the aperture copy.

    neither are the same tint as aperture's printing. better than nothing. i spent quite a bit of time determining that these were the best that could be found.
