  • Stranger than Fiction

    Teju Cole recently wrote what I thought was the best breakdown on the subject of surrealist photography, and managed against what seems like all odds to prepare a short introduction for The New York Times Magazine while maintaining empathy with the topic. Cole writes with clarity. I like feeling located, right side up, full, and I like fine, lapidary, complete, formal, or natural shapes. Naturalism is good, and I think his writing is chiefly an example of naturalism.

  • Paz Errázuriz

    I am overpowered by the photographs of Paz Errázuriz, and have not found it in the slightest way a simple thing to address this body of work. Her survey monograph from Aperture arrived earlier this year, and I have had a difficulty confronting the spare series “Heart Attack of the Soul” head on, as well as the section “Sleeping”.

  • Photography Gear vs. The Wild

    Our latest TCSTV episode was inspired in just such a way. If we were lost in the woods, could we start a fire using only the glass elements in our lenses? From here, Jordan and I quickly expanded the idea to the following: If stuck in a survival situation, how well could we manage using only the camera gear and photo accessories found in the average photographer’ s backpack?

The largest photo tradeshow in the world is in full swing, and the atmosphere couldn’t be more enjoyable.
