I've been in the process of recuperation. Slightly. If by recuperation I mean drinking lots of beer, spending lots of time with my friends, not going to the gym, and getting hired and then rejected from a second cafe job. It's my second week post college and I'm trying to collect myself.
The only photos I've taken have been on a 35 mm and in various photobooths in Brooklyn.
Here is some work that I've been looking at though:
Vanessa Davis, author/artist behind Spaniel Rage
Tod Seelie (www.suckapants.com)
Glen Erler (www.glenerler.com)
I'm going on a trip to Ohio in a few months and am in the process of organizing that. Also may be going to the UK in the late fall, if I'm lucky. School re opens soon enough and then I can show some new work. I was kind of bummed that I didn't get the Tierney fellowship, but at least it went to somebody great; Ayala Gazit. Check out her work! www.ayalagazit.com
Also, I got this neat new journal today at Desert Island, this comic book shop in Williamsburg.
Oh shit is that backwards? It looks backwards. Oh whatever.
The semester is over, school is over, I don't want to trade prints, I just want a break for a while. I want to breathe deeply and plan for my road trip, and make money so I can take said road trip. Starting in Ohio, heading down to Mississippi, hopefully. Then back up to NYC. Time to make resume so I can earn enough money to do all that. It's my saving grace to all this crap. I just want a job that doesn't aggravate me so much that I feel the need to drink at the end of my workday, that numbing my senses with drugs/alcohol will be the only means to surviving the tasks I have to do all day.
Anyway. I shot some pictures last week and will hopefully be able to post them in the near future.
