In this installment of Foto Friday, each photographer offers a moment of reflection. Perhaps a moment of truth. But remain the inquistive child you once were. Not everything the light touches is real, sometimes you need to close your eyes and surround yourself with darkness to truly see. This weekend, be weary of images. Especially your own….

If you’ve ever wondered what makes a man tremble with fear, you need look no further than the mysterious realm of horror movies. By now, you should know the horror of certain images lives simply in your mind. Fear of the unknown, the undead, the unassuming. As most horror movies are directed by men, it’s no wonder women and…

In Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, spatial intelligence is the “ability to visualize with the mind’s eye.” A trait dominated by xy, architects, mathematicians, scientists, and the blind. In this week’s Foto Friday we take a look into the androgyny that lies hidden within the pockets of American culture. A secret, happy society of tomgirls and boys. Though they may bound…

Photographing a One-Person Show: Artwork by Daisuke Takakura

/

Each one of us is a grid of selves, a messy flux of psychic debris. These selves follow us everywhere—the cautious among them prodding for corners and edges, the adventurous taking chances. They pass through us like ghosts, massaging the heart, tugging an arm, influencing our every movement and decision. Japanese artist Daisuke Takakura plays…

In this week’s Foto Friday, we reflect on the discerning “Life Is Short” memento framed in every break room of every LLC, C CORP, S CORP, and SLVSHP. A reminder that one day you will die, an idiot signifying nothing. And everything you knew and everything you know will cease to exist; even the sky,…
