The Mayfly has a lifespan of 24 hours, just enough time to reproduce and dance together in small groups.  In this week’s Foto Friday, we examine how a woman navigates through a world created in mans image. If the tall tale is true, if we sprang from the rib of a man named Adam, from…

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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson tells us, “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” In this week’s Foto Friday, the photographers cling to their own sort of spiritualism, seeking personal transformation in nature and also human fabrications. This weekend, remember to look closely to see and be vulnerable to the…

Having taken a two week hiatus, Foto Friday is back and dangerously optimistic. Dreams of volcanos erupting and walking through fire has led us here, to half-naked princesses, flaming handshakes, and a healthy “fuck you” to our misery and pain. Though we should limit burned bridges, there is no harm in torching at least one or…
