well, my solo show opens up on friday evening, so i guess this is the home stretch!
i still have a decent amount of work to do, but i'm armed with glue, some great pieces of salvaged plywood, and the biggest stack of polaroids i have ever seen in one plce!
i spent some downtime today with my copy of Walker Evans' 'Polaroids' book- a posthumous collection of works that he created in the very last year of his creative career. i hadn't picked up the book in a long time, and it was really fascinating to see the similarities between his work and my own. all of these images- 2,650 of them- we taken when the SX-70 camera was just a couple of years old. his subject matter wasn't "new" or "daring" - but he found ways to highlight the mundane and really make it exciting. if you've never had the chance to see Walker Evans' work, do try to find it.
here's a digital version of the flier for the show. i picked up a stack of postcards, today, and they look great. had i had more time to think, lately, i would have made up some postcards with more of my images, on them. no time for that, now, but it's definitely something that will happen as part of a larger project for postmarks, my long-distance Polaroid exchange project that i've been a part of since 2002.
well, back to my Polaroids and glue. for now, i'll leave you with a little joy.
