The Intrepid Art Collector gave the heads up that SF Cameraworks has their 2008 Fine Prints posted. Prices range from $350 to $1250, but remember that a large portion of that is tax deductable.

I spent a long day spring cleaning my files. Consolidating folders, renaming, backing up. All the things we're supposed to integrate into our "workflow", and put off. Here are two videos to cleanse the palate from all the heavy analysis I see coming out of the New York Photo Festival (see this post for a brief example, do a search if you really want to go down the rabbit hole because frankly I don't see why I should do ALL the heavy lifting. On the other hand if you need one more incentive, it seems Robert Frank chose Charlie LeDuff to serve as a modern day Kerouac.).

Last month Jane Tam opened a store on her web site to help defray costs associated with her Senior Thesis exhibit. I quickly purchased My Aunt's Tin Foiled Kitchen and Untitled (Can I Come Home With You).
Untitled (Can I Come Home With You) Jane TamShe has since graduated with her BFA and moved back to Brooklyn. She still has prints available. One can say that one is altruistically helping out a gifted young artist. The truth is closer to jumping at beautiful prints (read her CV if you don't believe me) from an artist who's prices, no doubt, will soon be adding zeros.
Full disclosure. I just ordered one more. I'm altruistic that way.

I received an email from Israeli photographer Tamir Sher the other day introducing me to his blog and website. I was able to take the time to have a look around today. His galleries are Flash based and when you enter, jazz piano plays. Thelonius Monk. Yesterday Jen Bekman had a special edition to benefit SFJazz which I purchased. The edition? Mark Ulriksen's Monk.
Take a look through the projects Mars and After Mars as well as his other series. Intriguing work.
I'm not sure if these coincidences take astronomy and convert it to astrology.

Baghdad? No, Boca Raton. The Boca police were able to put on all their gear when they turned out to quell fear when hundreds lined up for housing vouchers.
Really, it's funny if you don't think about it too hard......

Liz Kuball has entered into the realm of blogosphere commerce with a print offer, and it's a twofer. I would recommend jumping over there while there are still a few left. Liz needs a new lens!
I'm happy, Liz is happy, my framer is happy. Win, win, win!
