All Things Ordinary / Zine

A great little photo zine called All Things Ordinary just showed up on my doorstep. Issue #1 of this LA-based publication features work by many photographers I’ve mentioned before: Bryan Schutmaat, Ye Rin Mok, Nicholas Haggard, Eleanor Hardwick, and my friend Erin Loechner (Design For Mankind)!

  • I bought this and hasten to add I was rather disappointed, however if pretty girls taking pictures of themselves or their pretty mates lying on beds is yr bag, you won’t be disappointed.
    Not to say it didn’t have its gems, but they were photographs I’d already seen by my friends on flickr.
    Nothing else in it really grabbed me but $13 isn’t a great deal, so why not.

    • well, the zine IS called ‘all things ordinary’….

      (personally/actually, i’m pretty into the spread in the 4th image posted here.)

  • I saw this on creative output a while ago, looks like a great mag !

  • g

    i have a copy of this zine myself and i think it’s amazing. the theme seems very personal. i love it. good look on this one booooooom!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
