Some really fun photography from Gemma Booth. Apparently fashion photography doesn’t always have to include a bunch of naked girls! It must be pretty tough for Booth to take a bad picture when her shoots are so fantastically art-directed and brilliantly styled. Love the series with the little robot!
Jessica over at Pacific Cinematheque (great non-profit threatre here in downtown Vancouver) just let me know that on Monday October 20th (7:30pm) they will be screening some of the best work from Miranda July’s Joanie 4 Jackie Chainletter Tapes. Female filmmakers/artists were invited to submit work to July, the work was then compiled onto videotapes and mailed back out to everyone who contributed. So if you submitted something you recieved a tape of your own work along with an assortment of other artists’ work. Cool idea.
Not exactly hot on the heels of Beastie Boys Live – PART 1, but here is the next installment nonetheless. If you haven’t already grabbed Live in Australia ’99 and the Demo version of Paul’s Boutique do that first. Next up is Live in London – Wembley Stadium, also from 1999. Sound quality is the name of the game here so this is another one that is likely direct from soundboard or possibly from the feed that went out to radio.
Once again these photos were taken by Maya Hayuk, a fantastic artist whose work I am a huge fan of.
Some mysterious photography by Sweden-based Thobias Faldt. I read an interview with him where he talked about not wanting to look at a photo immediately after shooting it. The strong feelings of taking the photo then become attached to it, and he feels they can only become “pictures” when those feelings aren’t associated.
