Check In

So this seems like a good time to reevaluate things, as I'm preparing for a big move from New York to Chicago to start grad school in the fall at Columbia College Chicago (so psyched!). At this point, I'm thinking I'll be using the blog to post new things I'm working on, and not just defined projects, and think about new ideas. Sometimes I think Facebook has made posting people's work I really like kind of obsolete, but whatever.

some thoughts:
-looser photographs. things might not have to be so defined all the time.
-subtitles. i love the idea of adding subtext to an image that may or may not be related.
-invest in a hasselblad. my mamiya is sometimes hard to focus through the viewfinder because it's a little dark. does this basically mean i'm blind?
-photographs of people alone at bars / awkward people not quite part of a conversation / people lingering.
-go outside.
-photograph rainy days.
-photograph the holes in my walls as i patch them up.
-junk pressed into the sidewalk.
-buy more john divola books.
-make more text pieces.
-maybe the photographs of my ex's should have subtitles? like in foreign films?
