I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Color of Change
We Can't Breathe

“New Songs” by Photographer Tatum Shaw

A series of images taken between 2012 and 2017 by Portland and Atlanta-based photographer Tatum Shaw. While originally intended to offer an array of disconnected photos, Shaw’s final selection is, rather, an exploration of a pervasive feeling of impending doom. Akin to a collection of dissonant hymns — all striking a similar, ominous tone — Shaw explains:

“as I began editing in August of 2016, I stumbled upon a sequence that matched this heavy feeling of dread that seemed to be hanging in the air at the time. An incoming shift. It reminded me of the line in No Country For Old Men, ‘You can’t stop what’s coming. It ain’t all waiting on you.'”
