The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Impermanence Through Graffiti”

“Turning a Subway Car Into a Gallery, Until the Last Stop” – NY Times – 3/1/2015

Love how this artist demonstrates impermanence, creativity, and passion all in one train ride.

And you can experience it all by just going to New York City and riding the subway…Although which line will Nic 707 and his collaborators choose today?

The artist dropped his art practice, and then returned over 20 years later – an interesting story of how he circled back  to his original inspiration.

There are many ways to find your Path.

Bill Cunningham: ‘Facades’ Exhibition at the New York Historical Society

I love Bill Cunningham – his spirit as well as his photography work.

Based on his book “Facades” of 1978, the current exhibit at the New York Historical Society reflects his collaboration with the artist Editta Sherman, “The Duchess of Carnegie Hall,” where they drew from costume, architecture, and history to create a collection of images that are both playful and deep.

As Glenn O’Brien says in his New York  Times Article (which includes 14 images from the exhibition):

“Bill Cunningham is not an innocent, but he is a rare purist, and this body of work is a testament to his undiminished idealism.

By presenting fashions in the context of New York City architecture, Mr. Cunningham traces the evolution of aesthetics from colonial times to the rise of Modernism. On the surface, “Facades” seems to be a lark. There’s something very light, even madcap, in this historical dress up, but behind it, there looms serious intention.”

A “must see” for me!

NY “A Bare Market Lasts One Morning”

I love seeing people being creative with their thoughts and their vision.The message of this art piece and the way this artist chose to educate people caught my attention.

NY Times article about “Ocularpation” performance art by Zefrey Thorwell on Wall Street, Monday, August 1.

Playful and with a simple, accessible meaning. Wish I could have been in New York to see it!

“Kids in Calcutta and kids in Tulsa right now are talking about Wall Street, but they have never been there, and don’t know that there’s a Tiffany’s,” he (Zefrey Thorwell) said, or “that there’s more sandwich shops than banks, that there’s more gyms happening there than stock trading.” Demystifiying the street, he said he felt, was one step in educating people about the interconnected financial realities and critiquing the system. (NY Times article, 8.1.2011)
