Paul Strand. Blind. 1916.

Image

Strand would take photographs of his subjects using an altered camera. He'd fix a mirror somehow to the lens so that his subjects would be unaware and think he was pointing his camera at a water hydrant or something else but them.

50 years ago today, Bob Dylan crashed his Triumph and then disappeared for a year recovering before working on what would became the Basement Tapes.

I wish we had better candidates and could get all of the corporate soft money out of the election process.

I wish we had better candidates too!
It's been challenging the past few days as I absorb all the stress around me between the election and work related issues. I'll be anxious all day!
