Three choice photos from All Together Now, the new book on women in music.  It’s a great project - in depth conversations with some pretty notable women, not to mention some great photos.  The book is relying on kickstarter support, check it out: http://kck.st/MDZwFn

Cancer Alley at the High

I’ve long been a fan of Richard Misrach’s work.  His Cancer Alley series is at the High this summer, so if you happen to be in Atlanta, go check it at.  X, A

We’re almost done!  It’s been quite awhile since I sent the book to the designer and I’m excited to say it’ll be done next week!  Then another round of edits and it’s off to the printer!  WOW!  In the meantime, enjoy this cover and look out for a kickstarter video I’ll be posting in a month!  XX, A

I miss the dog days of summer.  The days of heat and just being a little happy since it’s so warm.  It’s fall and almost winter here, but the other day was nice so up Bernal we went.

I just turn the page,” Teller says of those very glossy fashion shots. “It doesn’t really interest me very much. My work has nothing to do with that. I just really like women, and I like men, and I like children, and I like eating, and I like doing everything. It’s something real. I’m for the individual human being.

Need a breather?  Have your fall birthday in a beer garden.  Ahhhh.

Here are some oldies but goodies.

Since coming back from Atlanta I’ve been trying like mad to catch up on projects, jobs, and life generally.  So this hike last weekend with D came as a nice little breather in the midst of it all…though sometimes coming down is just as strange is being in the midst of the hurricane of multiple airplane trips.

Last night I went to hear Emmet Gowin speak at the High Museum in Atlanta, as part of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography festival.  It was SO WONDERFUL. He talked  initially about the famous Ansel Adams photograph of a charred tree and grass.  He spoke about how it moved him in a physical, almost gut wrenching way and it was the first time such a thing had happened to him.

It’s so easy to forget the initial urgency you feel after you make this sort of discovery.  I remember when I felt this way.  It was after I saw Jim Goldberg’s Raised by Wolves photographs at SFMOMA way back in the early 2000’s.  That body of work changed me.  I came home so excited, so amazed.  Without this experience I would have never asked my mom for a camera for my graduation.  I never would have taken a photography class.  I never would have gone to school to study photography.  I would not have met the people I know, may not have travelled to the same places, may not even be living the place I am at present.  My whole life might have been totally different.  

Isn’t it strange how some of the most meaningful turns in your life are just accidents?  

I’ve only met Jim Goldberg once, very briefly. He probably doesn’t even remember me.  But if I ever met him again, I’d like to let him know he’s partially responsible for where I’m at right now.  I owe him a thank you.
