Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it is already 2013. I’m planning on graduating this May. CRAZY.
I had a great time ringing in the new year with family last night/this morning. So much fun in fact, I didn’t take a single photo!* We played dice and darts and there was plenty of good food and drinks. LOTS of laughing. It was perfect.
I’m putting together a “recap of 2012″ post (kind of like I did last year for 2011) and it will be up by the end of the week. I’m still in the ADKs for an extended holiday break and have been enjoying my down time. I needed it!
How did you ring in the new year? I wish you a happy and healthy 2013!
*more on the lack of photos coming up in another post!
photo above was taken earlier this evening. dusk is my favorite time of day.

“The photographs in this project are inspired by the narrative possibilities that still images have the power to suggest. I am interested in both finding and creating scenes that evoke feelings relating to desire, beauty, conflict, and tension. My artistic inspiration stems greatly from 20th century American realist paintings as well as cinema in general. I treat the titles for each piece as if they were the title for an allegory where the image represents just a slice of the narrative. Using a cinemagraphic approach, I leave the storylines ambiguous as to what has just happened or will happen in each scene.”

It’s been absolutely heartbreaking watching the news and seeing images of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy. NYC especially, with friends living their (I used to live there), is hard to accept. Times like this though, however terrible, always renew my faith in community. It is SO GREAT to see everyone coming together to help each other out! LOVE IT!
This sense of community is why I love this letterpress print, We Are So Good Together by Dylan Fareed (shown framed above), so much! That print along with Blue Marble (Sandy Benefit Edition) by 20×200 Artist Fund are limited edition prints on 20×200 which you can purchase and ALL net revenue from sales will benefit the American Red Cross’s efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
This past weekend at VSW we raised money to send down to Printed Matter. Their basement storage facility took on more than 6 feet of water and as a result lost a sizeable amount of inventory. Printed Matter is one of my FAVORITE organizations and this breaks my heart. If you can, please consider donating! You can do so on the Printed Matter website.
I just backed the photobook project I Wish You Where Here by Luke Strosnider on Kickstarter! I’m really excited to see the finished book (published by Anchorless Press). I had the pleasure of viewing a lot of these photographs a couple of summers ago in Jason Fulford’s VISUAL LANGUAGE workshop at VSW and they tell a compelling story. Also, they’re striking photographs – the one above with the blue coat is one of my faves. Be sure to watch the video to see more of the images and find out more about the project!

This Sunday is Yards Experimental, an evening of experimental art and music at The Yards. Fellow VSWer John Lake organized the event – he along with several of his friends and some of us VSW students will be displaying our photographs (workprints), which will be available to take home (FREE!) at the end of the evening. Fun!

I came across Bridget Collins’ work earlier today when I logged into Tumblr and her photos seemed to be everywhere. I reblogged one photo, but wanted to share more from her series Olly Olly Oxen Free over here. Above are a few of my faves. What do you think?
